Growing up, I thought I hated most veggies. Turns out, I only hate boiled veggies. I have come to the conclusion that hubs and I will eat just about any veggie as long as it is roasted (we still won’t eat lima beans, though, YUCK!).
The process is so simple and does its thing in the oven while you are free to go about preparing the rest of the meal.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees (if you have it set at another temp for your main dish, that is fine, just adjust the cooking time of the broccoli up or down).
Place broccoli on a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with granulated garlic, kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
Roast for 12-15 minutes, tossing halfway through.
Of course, there are many variations on this dish, but the above is very basic. You could spice yours up with Parmesan cheese, crushed red pepper, fresh garlic, even some ginger would be nice. Have fun with it!
