I've never been anti-vegetable by any stretch. I could eat artichokes daily and asparagus has always been a favorite. But salads are not my favorite and steamed broccoli has always been one of those things I eat because I know I'm supposed to. I've been trying to find some vegetable side dishes that I want to eat. It's a challenge sometimes, but I know that it's necessary for controlling weight and improving nutrition. I saw this recipe pinned on pinterest and I was skeptical. I figured it would be good because I love roasted Brussels sprouts, but I wasn't sure I would want to down broccoli like candy or chips.
I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. This broccoli is so tasty and I was actually looking forward to eating the leftovers. That is the only reason I'm bothering to put a silly broccoli recipe on this blog. But it's so worth it and I'm making this dish again just to have it around as a snack. So you picky vegetable eaters out there, give this recipe a shot!
broccoli (I used three small heads, but it's really flexible)
a few tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
a few cloves of garlic
