One of the ways I consume and enjoy more vegetables is to roast them. Roasting really crisps things up. It makes vegetables less boring for sure. This Parmesan Roasted Broccoli Recipe is the perfect side dish for nearly any meal . Serve it along side pasta or in the pasta as in my Roasted Broccoli Parmesan Pasta, or with your favorite protein.
How to Make Oven Roasted Broccoli
I like to make this broccoli in the air fryer or the oven. The air fryer cuts some time off of the recipe, but oven roasted broccoli is equally delicious. One of the most important things to remember when roasting vegetables is to do so in an even layer. If you pile the pan too high you’ll end up steaming the vegetables. It’s important to give them room so they can crisp up and they don’t steam on top of one another. Make the broccoli in batches if necessary.
Like I said, I do like to use the air fryer for this one. I’ll link you to the one I like in case you need to add one to your kitchen. I use mine all the time. It really speeds things up and it’s great for reheating leftovers.
