Yesterday, while grocery shopping at Growers Direct, I bought two bags full of fresh, raw broccoli. My initial plan was to steam all of it, and enjoy it with some salt and pepper. However, today, as I contemplated lunch, I was reminded of a roasted broccoli recipe I had found a long time ago. So what did I do?
Quick Google search for roasted broccoli recipes, weed through the results for the easiest/healthiest one, and then completely ignore any measurements for ingredients.
I did end up steaming some of the broccoli, but I also made roasted broccoli. Just washed the bunches, dried them thoroughly, cut off the florets, cut up the stems, and tossed it all in some olive oil, sea salt, lemon pepper, and garlic powder.
Popped it all in the oven at 450 for 23 minutes and voila! Delicious roasted broccoli! I was eating it straight off the pan, but also dumped a bunch in a noodle bowl from Trader Joe’s. Easy peasy, mac n cheesy, my friends.
