Roasted Broccoli with Garlic
Roasting broccoli adds an earthy depth to its flavor, and the addition of some thinly sliced garlic provides a delightful kick. I know some people who thought they didn't like broccoli but changed their minds when they tried this recipe.
1 pound broccoli, cut into medium-size florets
1 small clove garlic, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl, toss together all ingredients, and let sit for 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
Pour the broccoli mixture into a baking dish or roasting pan, and arrange the florets in a single layer.
Cover with foil and roast for 10 minutes.
Uncover, stir, and roast for 10 minutes more.
If the broccoli is not yet tender, stir it again and then roast for another 10 minutes, or until tender and golden.
