How most kids despise them and feed them to the dog or hide them in their napkin instead of eating them. Im no fool. My sister or maybe it was just me would put our bites of baked potato in our glass of milk while pretending to take a drink. Hey I was a there, man.

But kids, kids should try them roasted first and this recipe is going to hopefully win them over. Ya see, when broccoli, oil and a wee bit of kosher salt are tossed together on an aluminum sheet pan and roasted in a 5. The oil crisps the green tops and the broccoli stems so that its not only caramelized but super crispy. My nine year old wont eat anything green. But these she did eat, after I bribed her, butttttttt she liked them she really, really liked them Grab your knife and cut the stems off of a head of broccoli. Trim the broccoli heads into florets, cutting the larger ones in half so they are all pretty uniform in size. Like tiny trees. Throw the broccoli onto the sheet pan with a heavy drizzle of oil. Because were roasting at such a high temp I use either extra light olive oil or safflower oil. Season with a couple pinches of kosher salt, toss them around and then spread them out so they have their own space on the sheet pan. Roast the broccoli in a preheated 5. Season with black pepper and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Thats it Im absolutely in love with this Parmesan Roasted Broccoli.
