Better broccoli works for me.

I haven't posted a tip in a long while, but I did recently start doing something different that has completely changed my existence.

Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration, but I will say that there's no going back.

My life-changing tip: roasted broccoli.

I have always been a big fan of broccoli, but honestly it's not the most exciting veggie. Especially steamed. Which was the only way I'd ever eaten it. It was fine (a little blah), and something we'd eat regularly, but never very exciting.

Well, a friend a few months turned me onto roasted broccoli and I've never looked back.
Here is how I make it:
Chop broccoli the way you normally would to steam it.
Put in in a bowl, add a little olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper, put on baking tray.
Roast at 400 for 15-20 minutes.

Yum-mo!! Not only is it healthy, but it's delicious!
This also works great for cauliflower. And I just cannot tell you how much better and more flavorful this is than steamed.

Better tasting veggies work for me.

I will try this. We like both broc and cauli but steamed (as we always prepare them) is not really exciting :)

I love it prepared like this but with a little balsamic vinegar added. Delicious!

I bought some broccoli today to try this. I really only like it raw so far.

I was believing you until you said it works for cauliflower.
