  1. So simple, but I love roasted vegetables, it gives them so much incredible flavor!

  2. I’m going to make a BIG batch of this for a party next weekend…….simple and delicious!!

  3. One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. ~Luciano Pavarotti

  4. My husband, our two little boys and myself LOOOVE broccoli and cauliflower. I have not roasted it before though. We usually just lightly steam it. Will have to try it this way soon.

  5. Such a simple, yet healthy and delicious recipe! Sometimes you don’t need a bunch of ingredients to have a tasty dish. Thanks for reminding me of this! It looks good!!

  6. Is there a reason why folks don’t like eating the broccoli stem? It’s my favorite part… grew up with my mother just peeling the outside (tough) skin, cutting it up, and adding it to the rest of the dish along with the florets…. just wondering. 🙂

    • I love them too, but when time is limitied for me I just save them for juice…the peeling, etc. takes more time than just cutting off the florets. We LOVE the stem here too 🙂

  7. Fresh & Fit

    I love roasted broccoli and cauliflower! Never though of saving the stems though, great idea!
