My mom and dad had us over for dinner the other night, and my mom is always known to have healthy side dishes with the main course.  She makes me sick really.  She’s one of those…healthy types… you know?

Anyhoo… that night she made Garlic Roasted Broccoli.  Now I’ve never been a huge “broccoli,” fan… I’ll admit it.  So, being polite, I managed to put a few pieces of this “healthy side dish,” on my plate, and took a “polite bite,” and I was SHOCKED! My broccoli world was changed forever.  I went back for seconds (ok fourths) and I even cleared the pan when I was putting dinner away.  This is the most amazing healthy side dish, that I’ve ever had.

Did I mention how easy it is?  Yes, totally.  Within 25 minutes, (including prep and cook time), I have my go-to weeknight side dish ready to eat.

Just a small little bowl will do, and you can mix the oil and the seasonings.

I’m all about easy.  I buy the already cut, broccoli florets.  Heck with that cutting stuff. Then, I put the broccoli in to a ziptop bag (I hate washing dishes), and I pour the olive oil mixture in, and shake it…shake it.

To avoid dirty dishes once again, I cover my cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray it with a non-stick spray.

Lay all of the broccoli out, to get it ready for it’s suntan.

Bake It:

Bake it at 425 degrees, for 20 minutes (or longer if you like an even crispier broccoli — I sure do).

Straight out of the oven.  Mmm…that crunchy little goodness is mouth-watering. Some times I’ll sprinkle a little more salt or parmesan cheese over the top of the broccoli after it comes out for a little more “umph.”
