This recipe began life as Roasted Broccoli with Garlic from the Food Network, but I think only the absence of garlic merits headline status in a vegetable recipe. It was influenced by my roasted haricots as well.
- 1–2 heads of broccoli
- 2 T. olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, sliced
- ½ tsp. kosher salt
- ½ tsp. black pepper
- Cut the broccoli into florets and slice any extra stem you want to eat.
- Mix with remaining ingredients.
- Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet or in a roasting pan.
- Roast 15 minutes at 450° (425° with convection) without stirring.
Combine with roasted potatoes (started 5 minutes earlier).
Use sesame oil and scallions in place of olive oil and garlic, and toss in some sesame seeds.
