Really, I am a veggie lover. I have a great fondness for carrots, squash, zucchini and all sorts of beautiful green veggies, BUT there are two veggies that I've never been a fan of. One is broccoli and the other is corn. Please don't judge me! In an effort to eat healthier, I am trying to conquer my fear of broccoli. I've tried it steamed many times and just can't handle it yet. So, tonight I got brave and roasted it with a little olive oil and roasted garlic. Ok, why oh why didn't anyone tell me that when you roast broccoli it is amazingly delicious! I think I might like it now. Actually, I think I might love it now. Now, if I can just learn to conquer the corn! Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
Here's what you'll need:
2 cups raw broccoli, cut into smallish pieces
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons roasted garlic
salt and pepper
Makes 2 servings
Here's what to do:
Mix the olive oil and garlic in a mixing bowl.
Toss the broccoli with the olive oil and garlic.
Spread broccoli on a sheet pan. I lined mine with parchment paper for easy clean up! Add a little salt and pepper.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
It comes out roasty, toasty delicious! Do you have a broccoli or corn recipe to help me (and others like me) love them? Send it my way!
