Fresh broccoli tossed with garlic, lemon zest, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Kosher salt and black pepper; then roasted until tender.
I'm not a huge fan of broccoli, but will eat it when roasted like this Broccoli with Garlic or in soups or mixed in with something else like pasta. However, my family loves it so we make it at least once a week.
What is Broccoli?
The word broccoli comes from the Italian word "broccolo"; which means "the flowering cabbage". Broccoli was first introduced to the United States by Italian immigrants, but did not become widely known until the 1920's and is high in Vitamin C and dietary fiber.
