Broccoli is probably my favorite vegetable. I love it steamed, smothered in some sort of sauce, cheese, roasted, sautéed…there really isn’t a way I don’t like it. Roasted broccoli is a perfect side dish, especially if you don’t like your vegetables steamed or boiled to the point where they have no flavor. This is definitely a dish full of flavor!
2 small heads broccoli, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced (or thinly sliced)
about 2 T olive oil
chili pepper flakes, to taste
salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Chop the broccoli into bite sized pieces and toss with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and pepper flakes in a mixing bowl. Place mixture on a cookie sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes, until broccoli is tender and slightly browned.
