Ever since I can remember I have always been a broccoli fanatic. I was a picky eater growing up, but I always loved what most kids would consider to be gross, as in things such as broccoli.
My mom would simply boil it, but within the last couple of years I found this recipe for roasted broccoli and I've never gone back.
I strongly believe that the best way to cook veggies is to roast them. So much more flavor! And so easy, too!

2-3 cups broccoli (about 1-2 regular heads), cleaned and stems trimmed
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1-2 Tbsp. shredded Parmesan cheese (fresh parm is best)
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Place broccoli on a parchment paper or foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle the broccoli with olive oil and then toss to combine to coat each piece. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. (You can also mix the broccoli and seasonings in a bowl before placing on the baking sheet.)
3. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until stems are golden brown and slightly crisp.
4. Remove broccoli from oven and immediately sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Toss and serve.
