Roasted Broccoli and Carrots with Garlic



Roasted Broccoli and Carrots with Garlic

Before Roasting

1 pound broccoli, rinsed and trimmed
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon each  kosher salt, oregano, basil, parsley, garlic powder and lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup  Italian flavored bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely grated romano cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut the broccoli florets into bite size pieces. Cut the stalk into 1/8-inch thick, round slices. Place the broccoli into a mixing bowl and toss with the olive oil, all spices and mix together well.
Spread the mixture into a metal cake pan or deeper cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle generously with bread crumbs and grated cheese.  Roast in the oven till browned and tender, turning once while cooking. Serve hot with more grating cheese.  Next time I am adding peppers for additional flavors, I wish I had thought of that first! this was absolutely wonderful!

Those vegetables look wonderful. I am working on eating more vegetables so these are going to be made. They will be great to take for lunches also. I tried broccoli rabe tonight, I loved it with the slightly bitter flavor. I noticed you put some on pizza, I think that will be good too!

Roasted veggies looks awesome and touch of garlic made it more delicious.

I love roasted vegetables of any kind, especially broccoli and carrots. The high temperature you used is the temp. I use also, for roasting. Such a perfect side dish for any kind of meats, or seafood for that matter!

Claudia said...

Perfect! Roasting vegetables really highlights their sweetness and roasting them with garlic - just ups the flavor ante.

As always, the simple stuff is the most sublime when done right (and simple usually isn't easy to do right!) This is perfect- you did as little as necessary to make something come out wonderful.

Yummy roasted veggies! I like to toss in some sweet potatoes and asparagus when I roast them. The parmesan adds another layer of flavor. Thanks for the recipe.
