This is a super easy dish that turns an everyday veggie into a gourmet side in just 10 minutes!

Broccoli is in my top 5 favorite veggies and while I love it with cheese sauce, roasting it just elevates it to a whole new level.  This recipe doesn’t have a lot of ingredients and doesn’t take a lot of effort but the results are amazing!    I’ve used this exact same method with both asparagus and cauliflower with wonderful results!
