I’ve been trying to make Mondays meatless for the past few months so I try to get some of my most favorite veggies whenever I get groceries.
Broccoli is one of the most common vegetable I see in the produce section. Naturally, I get it a lot. I typically steam it and then sauté it with minced garlic and some chili flakes. This time, I wanted something a little different so I thought of oven roasting ‘em.
This is so easy and the florets are so tasty you wouldn’t want to stop eating them! With how easy they are to make though, I won’t be surprised if you would want to make it part of your regular meals at least three times a week!
Here’s what you need:
2 cups fresh broccoli florets (1 medium head of broccoli cut into florets, washed of coursed)
2 tbsps EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
2 tsps grated parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 deg. F (232 deg C). All you need to do is line up a large shallow rectangular pan with aluminum foil. This is really just for easy cleaning so it’s up to you if you prefer to spray the pan with some oil 😉
Line up the florets onto the pan until the pan is filled up. Spread/sprinkle the olive oil as evenly as possible. Then, grind some sea salt and black pepper then sprinkle with the minced garlic. I used the dried garlic for some crunch. Top with parmesan cheese. Bake the florets for about 12 to minutes. I would say 15 minutes was just perfect, however, if you plan to reheat them, consider roasting them for just 12 minutes. Mmmmm, broccoli goodness!
