Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Simple Side Dish

This is the side dish I could most often. The combination of roasted broccoli and garlic powder is seriously a match made in heaven. I find myself non-stop eating it when it comes out of the oven because it's so addicting. When we call them "trees," my picky eater, Owen, actually eats them too!

If you have leftover broccoli, I suggest adding it to my weeknight pasta or lemon chicken pasta. It adds nutrition and deliciousness to your dinner - a win/win if you ask me! Also, the leftover broccoli is delicious when it's cold and served with homemade ranch dressing.
