Oven Roasted Broccoli Recipe

oven roasted broccoliFriends, take me seriously when I tell you that cooking broccoli this way will convert your family into broccoli eaters. Want proof?

  • My husband who has turned his nose up at broccoli his entire life now scoops a generous portion of this onto his plate.
  • My two-year-old repeated the phrase, “Mo brockwy” at least five times when we served this at dinner for the first time.
  • When we went to a tailgate a few days later, the same two-year-old passed up the chips and other junk food for a handful of raw broccoli (thinking it would taste like the way I made it.) She wasn’t too happy when she took a bite to find out it didn’t have the flavor of the oven-roasted goodness.

I don’t think I’ll ever go back to steaming broccoli. We are oven roasted converts.

It is SOOOO easy too. Want to make your own?oven roasted healthy broccoli

    We’ve made broccoli this way for years, my kids argue over who gets whatever’s left. This method’s great with cauliflower and Brussels sprouts (cut in half prior to roasting), too. My husband hated Brussels sprouts before I started cooking them this way, now he sneaks them from the pan before I serve them.
