Roasted Broccoli

This is, by far, the best broccoli I have ever made. Crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside. Healthy, too! My kids don't like broccoli at all, but this stuff? They were so sad the pan was empty! Next time, definitely making way more!!

Roasted Broccoli

Garlic (3 cloves per head of broccoli)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper (best fresh ground)

Line pan with foil. Don't wash broccoli. In the words of the famous Jacques Pepin "If bacteria could survive that oven, it deserves to kill me." ;-) The broccoli won't crisp properly if it's wet, so if you must wash, do it much earlier in the day and lay it out to dry thoroughly.

Anyway. Put broccoli on foil lined pan. Drizzle quite well with olive oil. Distribute minced garlic all over. Sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper and ground salt. Bake on 400 for about 15 minutes, keeping an eye on it so it doesn't burn. You want golden, not fried.
