How to make garlic parmesan broccoli

Print this recipe
Broccoli is one of those vegetables that lots of people think they don't like. This unfortunate reputation comes, not from broccoli itself, but from years of preparing it in less-than-palatable ways. But the recipe below helps make broccoli hatred disappear.
The secret to making broccoli super delicious is bringing out its natural sweetness. This is a breeze when you roast it in a hot oven. The edges of the broccoli florets caramelize and become richly flavored. The Parmesan and garlic add a welcome hit of umami (savory taste), making this the ideal side dish for any meal.
