Surprisingly delicious. Roasting gives broccoli a nutty flavor, and with the salt reminded me a little bit of the flavor of wasabi peas or some other bar snack.
Very simple; makes a great side dish for pretty much anything.
From the Well-Fed Newlyweds.
5 c. broccoli florets (2 medium heads), rinsed and dried
2 T olive oil
1/4-1/2 tsp. kosher (or other coarse) salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400. Toss everything in a bowl to combine.
2. Spread broccoli out on a cookie sheet or pan in a single layer; roast for 5 minues, then flip and continue roasting for another 10.
That's it! Try not to finish off until you actually can get it onto plates.
