Roasted broccoli is seriously one of my favorite vegetable sides. You can also do this with fresh beets, cauliflower and asparagus! They are all really good.
1-3 heads of broccoli (stems included)
Preheat oven to 350-450. If I'm in a hurry I'll cook it at 450 because it's faster. Cut up broccoli into pieces. I like to leave a good part of the stem on, it tastes good. Drizzle with olive oil, salt liberally and add fresh cracked pepper. Mix around. Roast in oven until done. I like mine to still have a little crunch. In a 450 oven that's probably 20-30 minutes, you just have to watch it. In a 350 oven probably 40-45 minutes.
