Roasted Broccoli at its Best

Oven Roasted Broccoli
By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

Broccoli is loaded with fiber, vitamins C and A, sulfur-based compounds and more that are great for our health, and what’s better? Broccoli is such a diverse veggie and you can use it in so many different types of recipes, yes, even juices like this Oh Sweet Broccoli Juice. I made this recipe this past long July 4th weekend as a healthy side for a barbecue. It’s versatile and can be served both hot and cold and is delicious either way. Additionally, the shallot and garlic add some extra flavor and punch and because the broccoli is oven-roasted, it has a crispier texture and is oh-so-delicious!
