Oven Roasted Broccoli

I LOVE roasted vegetables!  I like to roast eggplant, peppers, zucchini, and squash and I am sure that if you follow this blog for very long, you will see more roasted vegetable recipes.

This week we had roasted broccoli with dinner and it was so yummy I decided to share with all of ya'll.

Oven roasted vegetables are so healthy and so simple to make! Perfect for a weeknight dinner when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.


1 red onion
2 cups broccoli florets
3-4 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Peel onion and cut into wedges.

Cut broccoli into florets.

Spread broccoli and onion on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toss broccoli and onion to coat with oil.  Season well with salt and pepper.

Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes or until broccoli and onion are tender and cooked to desired doneness; stirring half way through cooking time.
