Garlic Parmesan Broccoli

June 5, 2011

Earlier this year, I discovered the best roasted broccoli recipe I have ever had from an old Cooks Illustrated magazine. I tweaked it slightly to boost the garlicy and spicy flavors. It's very easy to prepare and takes no time at all. It'll become your go-to side dish for any weeknight meal - and will maybe also make a few broccoli converts in the process. Omit the Parmesan for a vegan side.

    Thanks, Melissa. There is a note in the description – the last sentence “Omit the Parmesan for a vegan side.” I just didn’t want to eliminate this recipe from that category because of the cheese. Like you say you can omit it or easily add a vegan cheese. Hope you enjoy!
