    Ginger Garlic Roasted Broccoli

    There are two kinds of people in the world. One who love broccoli and others who hate it. I belong to the former category and I fail to understand why so many people especially kids do not like this vegetable. When I was little, broccoli was not readily available in India so I discovered this vegetable pretty late in life. I remember my brothers and other kids making weird faces whenever they were asked to eat broccoli. They said it looked like cauliflower but was nowhere close to it in taste! My husband shares the exact sentiment of those kids. *Sigh*

    Anyway while I like eating broccoli in all forms, one of my favorite ways to eat is to roast the vegetable. It’s super simple, super quick and super delicious!

    Roasted Broccoli

    This is one of the easiest side dish that you can make, in fact it’s so simple that I had doubts whether I should be posting this at all! But then I thought it’s still a recipe with ingredients that need be combined, so I went ahead and posted this anyway.

    It’s always good to have healthy recipes which you can make without much prep work and the prep work for this is literally 5 minutes. Yes 5 minutes. I ate this as my mid morning snack  and relished every bit of it. Isn’t it so much better than munching on cookies and other such unhealthy stuff?

    Once you eat roasted broccoli I doubt you would want to eat your broccoli in any other way. I gobbled up the entire thing in one go.

    * It is not necessary to saute ginger & garlic before. You can slice and mix them with the broccoli directly as well and then roast them.

    * Use fresh lemon juice in the recipe.

    * Adding taco seasoning is optional.

    * You can definitely add some Parmesan Cheese to this.

    1. I love love love roasted broccoli, I definitely never want to eat it any other way, I think my family is sick of roasted broccoli because that’s the only way I ever make it! And I love that you added ginger and taco seasoning to it, I’ve never one that, can’t wait to try it like that!

    2. As a kid, I love broccoli. And, although I still love it today, it takes a back seat to cauliflower (I don’t understand this either). But I do love roasted vegetables, and I’d love to try this! This is a recipe Manali, so I’m glad you posted it. Pinned!

    3. You are so right about the two groups! I really like broccoli, but pretty much nobody else in my family does. So I’ll roast it up and eat it all myself. No guilt there!
      This recipe is fantastic. Simple and delicious! I love roasting veggies!
