Simple Roasted Broccoli







Ingredients

  • Broccoli, cut into florets

  • Canola oil, or another neutral oil

  • Salt


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. Drizzle a sheet pan with a small amount of oil, spreading to coat with a spatula or a clean hand.

  3. Add broccoli florets to the pan and toss to coat with oil from the pan. Spread the forests across the pan leaving space between so that they are able to brown.
