Garlic Roasted Broccoli

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 like our easy broccoli casserole.  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!!!

  1. I roast veggies often… because it’s so easy and no cleanup… I use a large Ziploc bag… place veggies in bag pour on olive oil and sprinkle with favorite seasonings…zip up bag and shake…then pour on to foil covered pan…

    1. Hi Rucelle,
      Thanks for that tip! Sounds like a no mess way to roast veggies! Have a great day!
