Garlic Roasted Broccoli

This is the broccoli of all broccoli’s. I could eat this all day everyday. My favorite thing about it is that it doesn’t “taste healthy” if you know what I mean… Super flavorful, great texture, just awesome. I’ve never measured this one out, but it can vary anyway considering your preference.

Ingredients:
Broccoli
Garlic (I use one clove per 2 servings)
Olive oil (about a tablespoon)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Parmesan cheese (in whatever form you prefer)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400
Grab a good sized handful of broccoli per serving toss with olive oil and minced garlic (again, I use about a clove for every 2 servings), salt and pepper to taste. It really doesn’t need much of either, throw it in the oven for 15-20 min. Flipping, tossing, or moving around halfway through. When it comes to the Parmesan I used both grated and shredded. I lightly sprinkle the grated on about 5 minutes before its done cooking, because I like the little crusting it does then I top with shredded Parmesan immediately after I pull it out.

Variations:
Squirting some lemon juice on the broccoli right after it comes out of the oven is very popular with this dish, not my thing, but I get it. Also, garnishing with basil! Yum!
