I’ve been trying to eat more veggies. It’s so hard in the winter to get them all in, at least for me. During the summer everything is fresh and available but during the winter, it just takes more effort.
My mom has been raving about Ina Garten’s Parmesan Roasted Broccoli recipe in her Back to Basics cookbook, which by the way is one of my most loved and used kitchen tools, so I figured I would try it.
This recipe is just the kind I like — super easy, uses just a few ingredients, and healthy. What could be better?
First I got all the ingredients together — nothing better than cooking an Ina recipe while watching her on TV. See her there in the background?
Next I chopped up the broccoli and sliced the garlic, and tossed them with a little olive oil and salt and pepper — and then just stuck them in the oven to do their thing.
The key to this dish is what you put on top — yummy lemon zest and parmesan cheese.
Here it is all assembled and ready to eat. Perfect for a drizzly Saturday afternoon. So delicious! Thanks, Mom.
