Anyway, there are two notably  great things about this broccoli. First, is the taste. A tablespoon of olive oil complements the garlic, practically sautéing the it on the broccoli. The salt and pepper add flavor, while still keeping the taste simple yet delicious.

The second Benefit of this recipe is how easy it is. You can literally just sprinkle some olive oil and spices on the broccoli, stick it in the oven, and walk away for 20 minutes. Come back, and be greeted with a fresh pan of roasted broccoli!

  1. Broccoli was my daughter’s favorite when she first started solids. Then she suddenly stopped eating it. She eats so many other good things so I am not worried, but broccoli is currently out. I did get her to take a bite of raw broccoli a few days ago for the first time in probably two years. Baby steps.
