Roasted Broccoli

The first time I made this Lucas asked me if it was some sort of candy broccoli. :) Not because it is sweet at all, but because it is so good, and it is so hard to stop eating it! I made a whole 9x13 sized pan full of it, and Lucas and I easily ate all of it. It is amazing how much roasting the broccoli changes the flavor.

So if you like broccoli at all, you need to try this recipe! It is so delicious and really healthy too, which is always a great bonus. Even if you don't like broccoli, maybe you should consider this recipe too. It really is that good. :)



Roasted Broccoli

What you need:

Broccoli (in the amount you would like)
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper
Garlic Salt

Use as much broccoli as you you think you and your family will eat. Lucas and I eat a lot of it, so we probably aren't a good gage as to how much you will need! But I bought a large bag of pre-cut broccoli at Winco for about 3 dollars and used half of it. 

After your broccoli is rinsed and dried, put it on a cookie sheet or in a casserole dish.  Drizzle the broccoli with olive oil. Season to your liking with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Toss the broccoli to combine all the flavors. You can also add many other spices or seasoning that sound good! Last time we made it, we added some lemon juice and parmesan cheese to it after it came out of the oven. 

Bake broccoli at 425 degrees until the edges start getting brown/black. (With my large pan of broccoli it about 30-40 minutes.) Take it out of the oven and enjoy!!!
