Roasted Broccoli

I don't remember when I started doing this. But probably within the last year, I realized that veggies totally ROCK when you roast them.

They are ready super fast and don't take much prep either.

We used to eat a lot of steamed broccoli, but roasted is BY FAR the favorite now!


No real recipe.

Enough Broccoli for your family
A bit of Olive Oil
Seasoned Salt & Pepper

Sometimes I add some big onion rings or minced garlic or some parmesan cheese.

Just lay it all out on a baking sheet in a single layer and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on seasoned salt & pepper.

Throw on some onions or garlic or parm.

Put it into a 450F oven, until the edges just start to brown.

Lots of little browned edges...

That's it!

It's so easy... but sooo tasty!

Only Tawny & I eat broccoli stems and normally I wouldn't cook them. I knew I'd be making some Broccoli Cheese Soup later in the week, so I roasted those too.

Quick easy and the only veggie that everyone in my house actually likes.

Stay tuned for Broccoli Cheese Soup!

I've never roasted my broccoli. I need to try it that way. Love all the little browned bits. YUM!

I've been roasting broccoli for a few's the only way to eat it! Also like carrots, cauliflower and brussels sprouts that way!

I have roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus but not broccoli. I must try it with your recommendation. How have you been. I am back from my blogging MIA. Stop by sometime!!

Funny, my son doesn't like the stems either. I bet the soup will taste great with the roasted goodness of the broccoli. Can't wait!

I've been meaning to try roasting broccoli, but I never do. I'm so lazy. Looks great, definitely an impetus to try it.

Bunch of broccoli lovers over here, too!! Cooked, raw, what evah...but roasted is definitely awesome. Love the saltiness of parm with it, too :D I left something for you over at my place...

Love broccoli, next time I'll try roasting them, so far I've either steamed or stirfried them.
And use the stems for soups, too.

I love roasted broccoli too! So simple, no recipe really needed. I do only add some smashed garlic into the mix.

My whole family just loves roasted veggies also. Too bad we didn't discover this until about a year or two ago. Just think of all the delicious roasted veggies we missed. So sad.

this is too funny cuz everything I've seen today on your blog is my fav (can you tell I'm hungry? LMAO)..but really...broccoli is something we eat a lot of but i've never roasted it...only steamed. I'm gonna have to try it.
