I read or heard about an increasing number of people who made roasted broccoli and found it amazingly delicious. However, when I first heard these reports, I didn’t believe it. How can simple roasting make something as unappetizing as broccoli amazing? However, after seeing more reports, I figured it would be worth a try, especially since some broccoli managed to make it’s way to the apartment. I suppose that’s what I get for making James get the groceries. I was still skeptical, so I made James promise to eat the resulting broccoli regardless of taste because I’m just nice like that, plus, isn’t it good not to waste food? :P
Luckily for him, this broccoli was AMAZINGLY delicious! I couldn't believe this roasted broccoli was made from the same vegetable I found detestable! I’m not sure how such a simple cooking method yielded such delicious results – and with broccoli! This broccoli definitely proves roasting vegetables is a simple and delicious way to prepare them! On top of that, you can really easily customize your roasted broccoli by adding other flavors as desired. I listed some of the ideas I came up with, but you could easily use your own as well! I’m guessing the roasting causes some caramelization, leading to deliciousness, but who really cares? Give this recipe a try and be amazed!

|1. Gather all materials.|
|2. Drizzle or spray broccoli with oil. Add in desired seasonings and make sure broccoli's covered. I kept it simple with just salt and pepper this time and just shook the broccoli with oil and seasonings to disperse them. Bake at 425F for 15 minutes or until broccoli cooked to desired tenderness.|
