Broccoli with Parmesan Cheese

Broccoli with Parmesan Cheese

Ya see, when broccoli, oil and a wee bit of kosher salt are tossed together on an aluminum sheet pan and roasted in a 500 degree oven… magic happens. The oil crisps the green tops and the broccoli stems so that it’s not only caramelized but super crispy.

Throw the broccoli onto the sheet pan with a heavy drizzle of oil. Because we’re roasting at such a high temp I use either extra light olive oil or safflower oil.

Perfect Roasted Broccoli l

That’s it! I’m absolutely in love with this broccoli. It goes with just about anything but it could also be served as an appetizer with any kind of dip.

I definitely could eat these like they were salt and pepper potato chips. For real. Who knew broccoli could be so delicious and yet SO easy?
