A deliciously simple vegetable side of roasted broccoli flavored with parmesan, garlic and a dash of lemon juice.
Leading up to Thanksgiving I'm going through my vegetable sides recipe posts. To be honest, sides are my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner. I'm looking for good sides to make this year and thought I'd re-share and update some of my favorite veggie sides. Parmesan and Garlic Roasted Broccoli is a great side to serve for Thanksgiving. It's not a usual Thanksgiving side but it should be. It's simple and delicious and everyone will love it. Have everything ready and it can go in the oven once the turkey is out and resting.

Many people need to eat more fruits and vegetables. I know it's true for me. This recipe makes eating your veggies easy. Roasting makes broccoli sweet and tender. The cheese adds a salty, cheese, and almost nutty flavor and, my favorite, makes the roasted broccoli crisper around the edges. I love garlic and add it to almost everything so it's always a natural addition and makes this dish top the charts in flavor. It's a great vegetable side dish for any meal.

Parmesan and Garlic Roasted Broccoli
Cook time: 20 minutes
2-3 cups broccoli florets (about 1 large head)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp grated parmesan
juice from 1/2 lemon (optional)
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 450F
Place the broccoli in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss until broccoli is thoroughly coated. (the oil should help the spices and cheese to stick to the broccoli)
Lay out in a single layer on a sheet pan and bake at 450F for 15-20 minutes or until dark brown and crispy around the edges. (sometimes I stir about half way through, but not always, and it seems to turn out great either way.)
Serve hot (it's still great cold too). Makes 2-4 servings but it's so tasty I've been known to eat it all by myself.
