Roasted Broccoli

This is truly the best way to eat broccoli in my opinion.  It brings out all the flavor and makes the broccoli really nutty.  A great healthy side dish in my opinion.

What you'll need:
1 or 2 heads of broccoli
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

broccoli washed and cut up, waiting in a roasting pan

Rinse and chop up broccoli to your liking.  Place in a roasting or baking pan (a cookie sheet would even work!) and toss with olive oil.  Sprinkle with Salt & Pepper.  Roast at 400 for about 20 minutes.  I usually check and will sometimes add more olive oil and S&P and toss again before continuing to cook.  I don't have time specifics for you, it depends on the size of your broccoli, but it should start turning golden a little on the edges and getting tender.  It should like like the picture below.

perfect little side dish
