If you haven't tried roasted broccoli yet then you're in for a real treat. It's a really easy way to prepare broccoli and roasting it brings out the best of its flavour.
Like many vegetables broccoli responds very well to being cooked in the oven. Like cauliflower it brings out the most delicious flavours and creates a crispy texture that is completely different to over-boiled, mushy veg.
It's so easy to make as well. In this recipe I've simply mixed broccoli florets with olive oil and sea salt for a simple side dish.
If you prefer you can jazz it up by adding some soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten free broccoli dish), chilli flakes, lemon juice and/or freshly chopped herbs.
Just three ingredients are needed to make roasted broccoli:
- 500g broccoli
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (sunflower or vegetable oil can be used instead)
How to make roasted broccoli
