Best Ever Garlic Roasted Broccoli

Best Ever Garlic Roasted Broccoli is a simple recipe with a deep caramelized flavor unlike any other cooking method.  It is tender and flavorful and 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'!

I really love roasted vegetables. I love the deep caramelized flavor that roasting lends to veggies! he simple preparation really rocks my world! In our new cookbook The Simple Kitchen, we have an entire chapter dedicated to Simple Sides & Veggies. Two of my new favorite roasted veggie recipes are in there are you are going to love them!!!

The last time I made this Best Ever Garlic Roasted Broccoli I realized that I have never shared this simple recipe with you.  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.
