Easy Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Roasted broccoli is actually one of my favorite side dishes. This humble and amazingly simple vegetable side is made with just three basic ingredients. Without much you can turn drab and boring broccoli into an impressively flavorful, enticing savory treat.

And the great thing about it? It goes good with just about any main dish you can think of. So when you aren’t sure what to serve with that entree on the menu keep some broccoli stocked in the fridge for the week (which is about how long it keeps) so you can have that any time you’re running a blank.

Sure it may take a two or even three times longer than steaming, sautéing, blanching/boiling or even grilling does but it’s worth the little bit of extra time, trust me!

Plus roasted broccoli really is the way to go if you are trying to get your kids to eat it. In fact, my daughter actually put broccoli as her favorite food on her “about me” page in first grade. I couldn’t stop laughing.

She must have been referring to roasted broccoli at least. Her teacher probably thought I only serve incredibly healthy food only around here but we all know that’s not true. I like to see it as balance – roasted broccoli and salmon for dinner leaving room for ice cream for dessert, right?
