Roasted Parmesan Broccoli

20190626-IMG_0028-2Growing up my mom’s idea of cooking vegetables was to open a can, put in a pan on the stove and cook with a strip of uncooked bacon. While this wasn’t a terrible way to cook vegetables, it was often rather boring. I have come to realize that I have the same tendency, although instead of opening a can of vegetables, I roast everything with olive oil, salt and pepper. So far it has worked for me to get my kids to eat more vegetables, and with this recipe I was even more daring and added Panko bread crumbs and parmesan. My youngest son said he didn’t know broccoli could taste so good!

  • 1 pound fresh broccoli washed and trimmed
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat the oven to 400°. Place broccoli in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle on garlic powder, salt, cheese and bread crumbs. Toss until fully coated. Roast for 15-20 minutes, depending on thickness.
