I’m often asked which of my recipes are my favorite. I usually reply with my family favorites that I grew up eating.

But what I’m really being asked is which recipes that I’ve developed are my favorite. That’s harder to answer. I rarely make my recipes again after they’re  published. But in order to be published, they have to be delicious.

My current project of remaking all my old/first recipes has allowed me to try some oldies, that are, in fact, goodies still! This Garlic Parmesan Roasted Broccoli is no exception. I had forgotten just how delicious broccoli becomes when roasted, much like all other veggies. Enjoy!

If your looking to use this in a full meal, try it with my Mushroom Tarragon Roasted Pork Tenderloin or this succulent Sweet Tea Brined Grilled Chicken.

I have never roasted broccoli.

I have always wanted to roast broccoli.  So, I must roast broccoli.

Fortunately for me I had just purchased broccoli at the store this very day and the desire to play with it in a new way was incredibly overwhelming.  I’m sure it’s painfully clear I have a thing for garlic and onions, and probably Parmesan cheese as well. So instead of just being simple with a little salt and pepper, I wanted to go with my traditional flavors. Garlic Parmesan Roasted Broccoli ~ Fresh broccoli tossed with olive oil and parmesan then roasted until crisp and delicious ~ The Complete Savorist by Michelle De La CerdaI am a big fan of broccoli stalks. I will cut off the bottom half, do a quick shave, then chop up the top half of the stalk.

I tend to watch it cook. Yes, I’m a peeker, it slowly crisped up, turning deep golden brown.

Unfortunately, once I got it out of the oven and ready for the photo shoot, I am certain I ate close to half the pan.  It was so good.  My non-broccoli lovin’ daughter even enjoyed this dish.  Any vegetable recipe that gets her seal of approval is a winner in my book.Garlic Parmesan Roasted Broccoli ~ Fresh broccoli tossed with olive oil and parmesan then roasted until crisp and delicious ~ The Complete Savorist by Michelle De La Cerda
