I will let you in on a little secret...roasted broccoli tastes delicious! The mix of a few spices and crispy edges takes it from boring to amazing!
Broccoli is a natural superfood - full of vitamin C, fibre, potassium, folate, calcium and even protein. It is loaded with disease fighting antioxidants and promotes detoxification and a healthy digestive and cardiovascular system.
This simple recipe can help you get more broccoli into your diet! And it is so versatile...eat it alone dipped in hummus, add it to a grain bowl, rice dish or pasta, or simply put it on top of your salad or baked potato. The options are endless...
Cut the pieces of broccoli smaller if using as an ingredient in a main dish like pasta or a grain bowl so that it is easier to eat with a fork. Cut the pieces larger if using as a finger food to dip in hummus, etc.
Heat the oven to 400. If you have the "convection bake" option - use it. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the chopped broccoli trees with the olive oil, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper until well coated.
Spread the broccoli out evenly on the lined baking sheet and cook in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until the edges get a little brown and crispy.
