The Best Ever Garlic Roasted Broccoli

Roasting broccoli gives it a deep caramelized flavor unlike any other cooking method.  This is truly the best roasted broccoli recipe ever.

Broccoli is my favorite 'healthy' vegetable.  I have to clarify that because I could eat corn and potatoes every day for the rest of my years and be a happy girl.  Munchkin (my 4 year old) and I share a love for broccoli, especially when it is covered in ooey gooey cheese.  I digress.  I would probably eat cardboard if you put enough cheese on it.  Just sayin'!
Next to steaming broccoli, I really enjoy it roasted.  The last time I made some I realized that I have never shared the recipe.  It is really easy and truly the best roasted broccoli you will ever eat.  Roasted with garlic and onions tossed in olive oil it bakes up like candy.  Bet you can't eat just one plate.

Dinner's Ready!

With love from our Kitchen Table to yours.  XOXO

Broccoli and Cheese Quinoa Power Bites are loaded with vegetables and healthy protein and are absolutely delicious.  What's even better is that they freeze fabulously.  I make a batch of these and freeze them.  Then I can defrost them on the day I wish to serve them or pop them in the oven or microwave frozen.  Munchkin ate these all summer long.  They were dinner every night for weeks.
