“Broccoli, flavored with just oil, salt and pepper and then roasted to perfection, is a simple and delicious side dish for any meal.”
Nonstick cooking spray
1 pound broccoli, cut into 3-inch-long stalks with florets
1½ teaspoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
1Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; lightly coat with cooking spray. Set aside. In a large bowl toss broccoli with oil, salt, and pepper.
2Arrange broccoli spears in a single layer in the prepared baking pan. Roast 15 to 18 minutes or until stalks are crisp-tender and florets begin to brown and crisp, using tongs to turn stalks once.
Variation: Just before serving, drizzle with 1½ teaspoons lemon or lime juice; top with 2 tablespoons crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese and 1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley.
