You probably remember your parents telling you to eat your veggies, but eating vegetables like broccoli was never any fun. Broccoli is often steamed until it’s tender and lacks much flavor as a result. This roasted broccoli recipe aims to rectify that problem by presenting a healthy, yet scrumptious way to eat this green vegetable.
From a nutritional standpoint, your parents were correct in urging you to eat the broccoli on your dinner plate. Broccoli is a fantastic source of vitamins C and K while containing few carbohydrates and fat. Broccoli is also a filling food, making it an excellent side dish to bulk up on in your meal.
To get the most out of broccoli in regards to flavor, it’s best to make oven roasted broccoli or baked broccoli. Unlike steamed broccoli, roasted broccoli obtains little charred or “burnt” bits that not only add a crispy texture to the broccoli but great flavor as well.
