I’m always surprised when someone tells me they don’t like broccoli…it’s one of my favorite green veggies!
When I ask why they don’t like it, the most common response I get is I guess I’m just sick of it…I need new ideas!
Well, there’s no way I can hear that and not come to the rescue.
Roasting broccoli is a wonderful way to prepare it; as it crisps up in the oven, it caramelizes in spots and takes on an almost nutty flavor. Caramelized onion adds natural sweetness, and balsamic vinegar adds a bit of tang. You don’t have to add grated Parmesan on top, but I find that just a tiny bit goes a long way…after all, cheese and broccoli are BFFs.
This side dish comes together easily for a weeknight meal, but I think it would be an equally wonderful addition to a holiday spread.
