  • Roasted parmesan broccoli -AKA the best broccoli ever! Such a simple yet tasty side dish!

    This parmesan roasted broccoli is one of my all time favorite ways to cook broccoli. If you aren’t a fan of broccoli, you need to try roasting it. I promise, it will give you a whole different perspective! Roasting it makes all the delicious flavors come out, making this one of my all time favorite vegetables!

    I may or may not make this broccoli once a week. Still working on my older 2 kids to try it, but my 2 year old tried it for the first time last week and LOVED it. She kept saying ‘more brocly peas’ in her cutest toddler voice.

    I know I’ve said it before, but there’s something about roasting vegetables that make them 100x better. We love roasted asparagus, carrots, zucchini…you name it! I never really cared for steamed broccoli, but once it’s roasted it’s so addicting. This roasted broccoli parmesan starts with a few simple ingredients: broccoli, olive oil and a few seasonings. Then to top it off I like to use freshly grated parmesan cheese. 

    I like to cook the broccoli for about 20 minutes before adding the cheese, the the spears get nice and tender. Once they start to caramelize, I pull them out and add the cheese. Then I put it back in the oven just long enough for it to melt. I love using freshly grated parmesan because it melts so nicely and tastes amazing! Parmesan roasted broccoli -AKA the best broccoli ever! Such a simple yet tasty side dish!
