In a perfect world, I would like vegetables.
I would eat them like candy, get in 3-4 servings a day, and not even be tempted by chocolate.
Unfortunately, it’s not a perfect world and I struggle to each healthy foods because chocolate just sounds so much better. 🙂
Photographing vegetables isn’t too exciting either . . . there is no gooey cheese or melted chocolate oozing out . . .
However, this broccoli is KILLER!
Killer as in I couldn’t stop popping these bad boys in my mouth after they came out of the oven. It was such a quick and easy side dish to prepare AND my kids actually ate it.
So, even though it’s not a perfect world, this broccoli is pretty amazing (for being a vegetable!).
Roasted Parmesan Broccoli
2 cups broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/3 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Dump the broccoli into a large bowl and drizzle oil on top. Toss broccoli to coat with oil. Sprinkle garlic salt on top and mix to incorporate.
Spread broccoli on a large baking sheet covered with aluminum foil and bake for about 15 minutes, until it starts to turn golden brown (you want it to caramelize, but not burn!).
Dump the broccoli back in a bowl as soon as you pull it out of the oven and mix with cheese. Serve immediately.
