Roasted Broccoli!

This is for you broccoli lovers out there. (As I'm writing this I am chowing down on a plate full of broccoli...so good) I like broccoli...steamed, roasted, in stir fry, in pasta, with butter, just however really. But this is probably my favorite broccoli recipe.

1 lb FROZEN Broccoli Florets (OR FRESH)
1 T Minced Garlic, or to taste
1/2 t Salt
1/4 Cup Bread Crumbs 
Parmesan Cheese- dump on as much as you'd like
2-4 T Olive Oil (or whatever liquid oil you have on hand)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Dump the frozen broccoli (or fresh) into a large bowl. 
  3. Sprinkle everything but the oil on top. Stir it around a bit to coat the broccoli and mix everything together.
  4. Drizzle SOME (such as 2 T) of the oil on the broccoli mixture and stir or toss it to coat. Just put enough on to coat the broccoli
  5. Pour that onto a greased cookie sheet. You can also spray tinfoil and place that on the cookie sheet so you don't have to wash the pan :) 
  6. Bake  for 15 minutes or so then move the broccoli around on the pan. If you have some pieces that are getting pretty brown turn those over. Personally I try to turn over as many pieces as I can.  Bake for another 15 minutes or until they are a nice golden to dark brown on the tips
So there ya have it. You can also put some lemon juice in there as well. And I like to use sea salt rather than just plain 'ol salt. Enjoy!
