Y’all.  I did it.  I actually did it.
I got my kid to eat broccoli.  And it only took 9 years.  And he loved it.

My trick?  Roasting it.

Now I’ve been roasting vegetables of years.  It’s my favorite way to do most of them – green beans, carrots, squash, mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, etc.  He’ll eat green beans and the occasional Brussels sprout.  He LOVES spinach, but for whatever reason, I never thought about offering him up some roasted broccoli.  I coated it in parmesan cheese, garlic, and a drizzle of lemon juice and he was sold.  But I mean, who wouldn’t with that combo?  Lemon, garlic, AND parmesan cheese?  Yes, please!

I’m a die hard broccoli fan and this might be my most favorite way to make it now.  It’s a far cry from the microwaved frozen blocks of broccoli and cheese of my childhood (which I still like, BTW).  But the parmesan cheese gives it so much flavor and I just love how the edges get a little charred.  So good!  I just know you’re gonna love it, too!

  1. Thanks

  2. What kind of Parmesan did you use? Grate your own, pre-packaged or the powder kind?
    Sounds really good!

  3. This looks delicious. Have you tried roasting it on Stove. I saute til brown. Add a little chicken broth and put a lid on til it’s ready. Then I put a little butter on top. Chicken broth cooks away but leaves flavor. I’m going to try your recipe this week!

  4. I have made one similar but put a bit of red pepper on it and no cheese, think I will try cheese next time. I Love Broccoli and this sounds wonderful!!
