Broccoli is that vegetable that you either loved or hated as a kid. While as an adult, you probably enjoy the complexity of its flavor. And with all of those wonderful vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, this low calorie food makes for one of the best side dishes.
My favorite way to eat it is roasted. I think that it enhances the flavor depth of broccoli. This recipe for roasted broccoli florets is quite simple, And simple recipes are a God send to anyone with a hectic schedule, or an inexperienced cook!
The balsamic vinegar adds a lovely subtle sweetness to this otherwise savory dish. All you need are just a handful of ingredients that you probably already have in the pantry!
A bag of broccoli florets
3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper to taste
2-3 cloves grated garlic
1 tsp Red pepper flakes
Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a parchment lined pan, toss the broccoli florets with the rest of the ingredients & roast for 30 minutes.
Don’t shy away from making this as garlicky as you like! And that goes for the red pepper flakes too!
That’s it. Serve it as a side dish or a snack!
