Roasted broccoli is so easy to make and healthy too. 15 minute snack or a side dish, this roasted broccoli and cheese, will make you drool. Sprinkled with Parmesan cheese to give it that extra edge in taste and deliciousness.
Who says broccoli is boring! Broccoli can be fun and interesting. Try this oven roasted broccoli which is not only easy to make, but also very quick. Sprinkle or coat the broccoli with some seasoning and olive oil, roast it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes and you have your roasted broccoli.
I also love a nicely sauteed garlic broccoli but this roasted broccoli with garlic is so much better. Broccoli has Vitamin K, C, folate, potassium and fiber. It’s a super food rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C which helps build collagen and protects body from damaging free radicals.
