Elevate your broccoli side dish by roasting it in the oven with garlic and olive oil.

One side dish I’ve been making over and over again during quarantine is roasted broccoli with garlic. Toilet paper might be scarce in the grocery stores right now, but broccoli seems to be readily available everywhere! :)

I love broccoli in all forms, but this simple garlic roasted version is my new favorite. The garlic gives it great flavor, and roasting it in the oven gives it the perfect firm, yet tender texture.

If you’re worried about the broccoli becoming a little “charred,” don’t be! Obviously you don’t want it to become burned or blackened, but the brown char on the roasted broccoli is what brings out the flavor.

This recipe could not be any simpler to make, as the ingredients are combined right on the pan. Just stir halfway through to ensure even cooking.
