I am a broccoli fan and I love balsamic dressing so I may be a little bias but I recently tried this yummy recipe and 3 out of 4 of us in our house really, really enjoyed it.  My husband raved about it.  My 16 month old gobbled it up saying “yum yum” and I devoured a Shrek-sized portion not feeling the least bit guilty because it’s good for me!  My three year old, well that’s another story.

I did add a  bit of sugar to the dressing but otherwise followed the recipe as directed.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 medium sized heads of broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons or so of balsamic vinegar
  • salt, pepper and sugar to taste

Wash and cut the broccoli into bite sized pieces.  Combine the dressing ingredients in a large bowl and toss with the broccoli, then place the broccoli on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 15 minutes or so turning once about halfway through.  It’s so simple and delicious.

Try this if you haven’t already because it really adds some pizazz to your broccoli side dish, now how about that!
