Oven Roasted Broccoli

The Oven Roasted Cauliflower was such a hit that I tried it with broccoli! WOW! This was THE best broccoli recipe I've ever made! Oven roasting gives it a sweet, nutty flavor... a huge improvement over steamed.

Oven Roasted Broccoli and Garlic
4 cloves garlic, unpeeled
1 bunch broccoli, trimmed,washed and separated into flowerets
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place unpeeled garlic in a small pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove from water, peel (slice large cloves) and combine with broccoli flowerets in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss well. Spread on ungreased baking pan. Bake, stirring several times, until broccoli is lightly browned (about 8-10 minutes). Remove from oven, sprinkle lightly with olive oil (if desired) and enjoy!!!

Helen's Notes: You might like to sprinkle the cooked broccoli with lemon juice. Or toast some Panko crumbs until light brown. When broccoli is cooked, toss Panko with grated Parmesan cheese and sprinkle over the broccoli.
