Satisfy your veggie craving with this gorgeous and tasty Roasted Broccoli
Sometimes a person just wants something green. There is something that the body needs and you crave something real. Broccoli is low in fat and cholesterol, high in Vitamin C, and a good source of protein, so it’s an excellent go-to green for nutrients. But how do you prepare broccoli to actually make it taste good while it’s going down?
The recipe is actually super-duper simple. Here you have it:
- 2 small heads of broccoli
- Canola Oil Cooking Spray
- Kosher salt
Let’s Get Cooking:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a cooking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Cut broccoli into large bite sized florets and place in a bowl.
- Spray the broccoli florets with the canola oil cooking spray for about 2 counts. Toss the broccoli and spray again for 2 counts, tossing once again. Season with kosher salt and toss, then season again. Be careful with the kosher salt: you can always add more, but you can never take away.
- Bake at 400˚F for 15 minutes.
That’s it, baby! Take those beautiful little florets out of the oven and let ’em cool. The broccoli sprouts should just be roasting, maybe the stems have a little toast to them, but mostly they should be a gorgeous bright green color. They’ll be cooked and yet crunchy; savory and not bitter. It’s also a great way to prevent your home from getting that gross steamed broccoli smell. Broccoli is delicious, but the aroma it gives off when steaming is–let’s admit it–gross. This Perfect Roasted Broccoli totally fixes that problem. Just look at how delicious that is!
