Perfectly Roasted Parmesan Broccoli

If you're trying to add more veggies into your day, but don't enjoy them raw or steamed, I HIGHLY recommend that you try roasting them. Roasting gives vegetables a totally different texture and flavor. Unlike any other cooking method, roasting caramelizes the vegetable which gives it a naturally sweet flavor. And who doesn't like sweet?

Serve to any veggie skeptic and watch them change their mind.


Perfectly Roasted Parmesan Broccoli

Ingredients:

1 head of broccoli
Sea salt
Pepper
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
Lemon

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. Cut broccoli into florets, leaving about 3/4" of stem.
3. Coat a baking pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Add the broccoli and coat with cooking spray and salt and pepper to taste. Roast 25-30 minutes, or until tender and crisp.
4. Remove from pan and place in a large bowl. Add the cheese and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and toss to combine. Serve while hot!
