Roasted Broccoli

We all know that you are supposed to eat your veggies, but what if you are like me and you don’t love them? You find a way to make them taste great.

This is a fast and delicious way to consume one of the best veggies for you: broccoli.

Broccoli’s biggest advantage is its nutrient content. It’s loaded with a wide array of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other bioactive compounds.

Cooking instructions

  1. Place oven rack in the middle of the oven and put the baking sheet on rack.
