How to Cook the Best Broccoli

by heart4home.net website

Vegetables (especially broccoli) need to taste good to get eaten. Roasting is my favorite way to cook vegetables. Roasting adds great flavor!

Supplies

  • 1 head or 1-2 # fresh broccoli
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sunflower seeds, roasted
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Yes, it's good for you...but if it doesn't taste good nobody will eat it. This is easy to make and taste great. It's delicious!

    Step 2

    Chop broccoli into bite-size pieces.

    Step 3

    The stems are edible too! I learned this from a Chinese Food cooking class many years ago. Peel off the outer thick skin and chop.

    Step 4

    Toss with 1-2 tablespoons of EVOO, sprinkle with salt and pepper. I use a baking dish with a layer of parchment paper (for easy clean up).

    Step 5

    Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

    Step 6

    After about 15 minutes you'll notice brown crispy edges.

    Step 7

    Toss with a handful of roasted sunflower seeds and a handful of Parmesan cheese.

    Step 8

    So good! I could eat the whole bowl! Please follow me here at Snapguide or visit me online at http://heart4home.net
