1 lb broccoli florets
1/4 tsp kosher Salt
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 425°F. On a standard baking sheet (we line it with foil or parchment paper for ease in cleaning), spray with oil. Evenly distribute florets and season with salt and pepper. Spray tops of florets with oil. Roast for 16-20 minutes or until the broccoli is tender and the tips of the florets are crisply browned. Scrape and serve.
Vegetables and sweet aren’t two words that we associate with one another unless it involves carrot cake or candied yams. Roasting highlights the natural sweetness in vegetables as they caramelize. This recipe is about as straightforward as you can get with roasted broccoli. There are ways of enhancing the flavor without too much added prep (fresh lemon juice, garlic, or parmesan cheese to name a few), but since time is always so tight, we appreciate just being able to open a bag of pre-washed florets; add spray oil, salt, and pepper; roast them and done!
