I am a huge fan of broccoli. A restaurant in my home town makes the best steamed broccoli! Whenever I go there, I always know that I want the broccoli as my side dish, and I have to choose something to go with it. Unfortunately, living almost 3 hours away from home means that I don't get to have it as often as I'd like. I bought a fresh head of broccoli at a grocery store where I currently live to attempt to make some roasted broccoli. I figured, you can make roasted squash, zuccini, etc. Why not broccoli?
To start, I cut all the florets off the big stalk. I only wanted to use the top parts. It may seem wasteful, but I'm saving the stalks for soup. I sprayed EVOO onto the broccoli and sprinkled it with salt and parmesan and my secret ingredient. Roasted in the oven on 350 for about 10 minutes. The broccoli came out a beautiful green, the parmesan roasted a nice golden brown. My husband and I ate our portion and came back for seconds! Wonderful!
