Roasted broccoli

I am a woman of my word! I am starting the month of February off with a healthy recipe! I cannot, however, promise an entire month of the same. I hope you understand. My obsession with sweets has taken hold of my brain, and my blog, for the time being. My husband and I do have a stellar Super Bowl menu planned, so there will be those snacks to share, as well. I'm super excited about some of the things we came up with. In the meantime, let's roast broccoli! For me, roasted vegetables are as good as candy, but I know not everyone agrees with me on that. 

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. On a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle 1 pound of trimmed broccoli florets with 1/3 cup of extra-virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss well.

Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is tender and golden brown. Serve warm. Yum!

Yummy! I love broccoli, too, but I've never thought to roast it! Thanks!

I do this all the time, its delicious! This recipe has converted my husband into a broccoli lover, still working on the kids though! I've recently tried roasting the broccoli using just Pam spray, and its really come out just as good, and its nice to save on the oil calories... I roast at 400 and use salt, pepper, onion & garlic powder. I like when a few of the floret ends get a little charred.
