Oh Broccoli!

Remember those old Alka-Seltzer (or was it Pepto Bismol) commercials that went "I like ________, but they don't like me!" Now that I'm older (as with so many things!) I get what they meant by that. I could fill in that blank with garlic or broccoli, and that is why this week is the best week to make oven-roasted broccoli, which is the recipe that I have been so crazy about over the last few weeks.

It's so delicious that it's worth the repercussions, as long as everyone in the house has some, and believe me, everyone in your house will want some. It's so good that I've been willing to heat the oven (and my kitchen, which is only a larger oven) to 425 degrees, even in this Summer heat.
So, do try this recipe, and enjoy. For the record, I've made it with bacon grease in place of the olive oil, for health purposes, and it's just as good. If not better. Oh yeah.

Made me laugh -- olive oil IS fat! Is there a link to the recipe? Looks delish.

Oh I don't think that's under dispute, just that animal fats are healthier, is what that author says, and undeniably yummier... :)
The link to the recipe is there, click on "oven roasted broccoli" or on the picture, the website kind of tells the recipe in narrative style but it's in there, or you can google it. I had it again tonight, DELISH!

Just took it out of the oven - it is lovely! I did half broccoli and half cauliflower. Yummmmmm.
