Roasted Broccoli

Standard

revised34I LOVE TO ROAST VEGETABLES!! You can reduce the amount of fat required by using dry heat to soften vegetables. Dry heat (roasting, grilling, broiling, etc.) also does a much better job of preserving the nutrients of the vegetables than wet heat (steaming, boiling, poaching, etc.). This is a very simple recipe, and the key to its success is in the seasoning. I choose an herbed sea salt and freshly ground pepper along with a good quality olive oil.


ROASTED BROCCOLI (serves 4)

Ingredients

  • 14 ounces broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cut broccoli florets from the stalk. Peel the stalk and slice into 1/4-inch slices. Mix florets and stem pieces with olive oil in a bowl and transfer to a baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven until broccoli is tender and lightly browned, about 18 minutes.

About Worth Stopping By . . .

I am a blogger who would rather talk than write. I enjoy traveling, family time, friends and food/fine dining. I have made some real efforts in the kitchen lately, and I blog in order to document and motivate myself to: 1.) fully use all of the fresh ingredients in my kitchen and 2.) cook healthy, creative meals.
