Ultimate Roasted Broccoli

roasted broccoliSince it’s St. Patty’s day, I’m going for the green theme! If you’ve ever had roasted broccoli, you know it’s amazing. Trust me, there’s a way to make amazing even better…and it’s simple and quick.

I love to roast veggies, and I’ve posted a bunch of my faves:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Of all of them, I think the roasted broccoli is the one we make most often.

The secret is the dried minced onion, and adding it at the end. I simply don’t have time to do all of the chopping and dicing when I get home from work, and dried is so easy and convenient.ultimate roasted broccoli

3 Tablespoons of olive oil

2 large heads of broccoli

1-2 tsp coarse sea salt

1-1.5 TBSP dried minced onion (reserved!)

Preheat oven to 350, and chop broccoli into small pieces. Toss broccoli in olive oil and salt. Spread out chopped broccoli over a cookie sheet lined with foil. 2 large heads of broccoli gives enough good stuff to thoroughly cover a large cookie sheet. Bake at 350 until browning, around 20-22 minutes. THEN add in the dried minced onion, stir and bake ~4 minutes more, or until the onion is browning.

It is so good…you’ve got to try it.

McCormick’s sells big containers of minced onions, which we tend to bust through pretty quickly.

    I’ve always disliked broccoli and I’ve been looking for a recipe that makes it taste better (because I want to eat it!). This one looks pretty good. I will definitely try it out. I’ve never seen dried minced onions in the store though, so time to do some searching (maybe Whole Foods?). Anyway, thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to try these!!
