Roasted Florets

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/roasted_florets.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2005, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Roasting members of the brassica family brings out a hidden nutty sweetness that could change a few minds about these oft-maligned vegetables. Use either broccoli or cauliflower or a colorful mix.

4 servings, 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place florets in a large bowl with oil, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread out on a baking sheet. Roast the vegetables, stirring once, until tender-crisp and browned in spots, 15 to 25 minutes. Serve hot or warm with lemon wedges, if desired.
