Take your side dish to a new level with this crispy roasted broccoli; it’s so good you’ll be eating it right out of the oven. Plus, once you’ve got the basic roasting technique down, the flavour options are endless, as you can top this roasted broccoli with any herbs, spices and seasonings you like.
A few weeks ago on my Instagram I asked what type of recipes you would find helpful and there was an overwhelming request for simple side dishes. Although I share a lot of recipes I think I sometimes forget that it’s the simplest ones that we get bored of easily so it’s nice to have some different alternatives to try.
Broccoli is a go-to side dish for me because it is typically inexpensive to buy, it’s a hearty green, and it’s easy to prepare. I spent years eating steamed broccoli, but after a while, that gets a little boring. Fortunately, the fun thing about cooking is that by simply changing the cooking method you can create a completely new dish, much like this roasted broccoli.
I honestly wish I had thought of roasting broccoli earlier in my life because it is so darn good! For this recipe, I included some garlic powder and toppings for extra flavor, but if you are in a rush (much like I often am myself) a little drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt is all you truly need for this crispy roasted broccoli.
This crispy roasted broccoli is best served warm as a side dish, but also stores well in the fridge and can be added to salads.
