How To Roast Broccoli
Roasting broccoli is incredibly simple – you just need to trim and clean your broccoli, toss in seasonings, butter, or oil – and cook in the oven.
When roasting broccoli, you help to reduce the bitterness, and bring out a nutty, earthy flavor – without making broccoli soft and mushy.
