One of my favorite sides! My hubs was not a huge veggie fan when we met 10 yrs ago!!! He actually had NEVER had a salad before, this is a TRUE story!!! He liked NOTHING green, but as time has passed and I have continued to introduce vegetables in all kinds of new ways, steamed, roasted, sauteed, etc….I have learned that a little cheese makes everything better. On our 4th anniversary we were out to dinner and he actually ordered a side of broccoli, I thought he was just being sweet and getting an extra side for me since it is one of my favorite foods, so I say “honey, you didn’t have to do that” and his reply, “do what? order broccoli? why? its for me!” I was so taken back thinking “where is my husband and what have you done with him! ” 🙂 This is now one of his favorite ways to enjoy broccoli and mine as well! He says it tastes like fried okra?? Try it out and see for yourself!! 🙂


1 head of broccoli (or desired amount- I did one bag of florets)


garlic salt

olive oil

parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 400

Grease baking pan w/ olive oil or butter

cut broccoli florets (as small as desired) place on baking sheet

drizzle olive oil and mix on pan to coat broccoli lightly

add lite salt to taste ( I used very little)

garlic salt to taste

Bake at 400 for 20 min.

After 20 min. check and sprinkle parmesan cheese

It should be crunchy/ crispy when it is finished!!!

One of our favorite dishes along side any lean protein or healthy fat!
