Tired of the same old way of preparing broccoli? Looking for a new twist for family get togethers and weeknight meals? I have a simple, but delicious, recipe for roasted broccoli.
Roasting veggies really has a way of bringing out the rich flavor and texture that you just don’t get when you bake or boil them.
This recipe will take less than 30 minutes to prepare, and it will give your taste buds a burst of flavor. The tough stems turn tender and the tree-like tops turn crispy. Your kiddos will even be asking for more!
1 to 2 heads of broccoli (1 1/2 lbs.)
1/4 c. olive oil
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Five simple ingredients. That’s it! The lemon juice gives it a crispy and zesty flavor. A little salt and pepper. And you have a tasty dish that’s healthy and delicious! High heat gives the florets a slightly burnt appearance, but don’t let that scare you. The darker roasted crispy pieces actually have the most flavor.
If there are any leftovers, you can add them to a casserole or use them to complete a pasta dish. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
