So, like many people I will be honest and say that while I love a plethora of fruits, veggies are a lot harder for me to enjoy the same way. I love cucumbers and raw bell peppers and a good summer salad. However winter time I can get the 'blahs' with my healthy food intake.
Pinterest to the rescue! I found a recipe on there that boasted to be the 'best broccoli of your life.' I decided to give it a shot and I have not been disappointed at all! I love it. The non-veggie eater husband likes it...it is a winner in my book and we eat it almost nightly. If you want to see the original recipe go here.
I don't do much differently than the original recipe calls for. However I will say that I do not go through the trouble of drying the broccoli off. I wash it and blot it with a paper towel but by no means feel you need to dry it completely for a delicious side dish. And I also measure nothing. I just do it until it looks right. So, if you cook like I do and just kinda mix a little here and there, here is what I do.
Preheat your oven to 375
cut and wash broccoli and spread on baking sheet (I use non stick foil too)
drizzle with olive oil press garlic (1-2 cloves is what I use)
sprinkle a little salt and pepper and just mix it around on the pan
bake until the broccoli has some brown on it (it will not taste burnt I promise!)
drizzle with some lemon juice mix together then top it off with a little fresh parmesan cheese!
You really should try it, it is super delicious!
And speaking of sprinkling salt and pepper, check out what I have been doing with the Silhouette I got for Christmas. I may or may not have gone on a labeling rampage once I got my machine all set up...
and lastly...Saturday I have a hair appointment and I am going to be a little bold in my hair color choice :) Can't wait to share it!...well that is as long as it turns out like the picture I have in my head (but when does that ever happen?!)
With love from my bed (ha!),
