I have a hard time finding veggie recipes that make me think "yuuuummmm!!" But here's a recipe that is so much better than plain broccoli.
Garlicky Roasted Broccoli
5 minutes to make
20 minutes to cook
1 1/2 pounds broccoli
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with the olive oil, garlic, ginger, salt and crushed red pepper. Spread the broccoli on a baking sheet and roast in the upper third of the oven for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender and browned in spots.
Makes 4 servings.
