Broccoli is always the go-to veggie for my kiddos.  It’s simple to prepare and always entertaining on the plate.  We called our’s “little trees” when they were younger to promote eating!  It always worked and the nickname has stuck in our house.    

Let me show you how to take those little trees to a whole new level

Right now, California is pumping out the fresh, green bunches so you can buy up a truckload for cheap!  Steamed, baked in a casserole, or raw, you can’t go wrong with broccoli.  

But, clearly, I can’t leave well enough alone….

I roasted mine in a scorching hot oven!  So hot in fact that you might think I’ve lost my mind.  These high oven temperatures are normally reserved for pizza and chicken.  But, hey…. let’s live a little dangerously for a second.

Actually, about 12 minutes….

Spread them all out in an even layer on a baking sheet…

Bake for about 12 minutes until tender and slightly charred.
