The Better Side of Broccoli

By: Foodlets

If there's one complaint I hear over and over from Foodlets readers, it's about getting kids to eat more vegetables. And to that I have one piece of tried-and-true advice: Roast them. I've roasted carrots, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, asparagus and now broccoli. It's so easy and so delicious; I can't believe I haven't tried it before. Here’s what you do: Slather a few cups of broccoli florets with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and roast in a hot oven (around 400 degrees F).

When the edges are crispy, but the centers still soft, you know it's done. Encourage anyone who's had a bad broccoli experience in the past to try just one bite. They may not immediately become a fan, but over time, this is the recipe that'll win 'em over.
