Garlic Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower. Do those words make you turn up your nose a little? We all know that broccoli and cauliflower are some of the world’s least favorite vegetables. But as members of the crucifer family, they’re also some of the healthiest. It’s actually a good rule of thumb that the more bitter and offensive a vegetable is, the better it is for you and the more often you should eat it. So it’s been one of my primary missions, as a health-conscious chef and eater, to try to find ways to make these vegetables more palatable for myself and my fairly picky husband. Well, this Garlic Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower has become a staple for my meal prep, making an appearance in our menu at least once a month. It’s easy to throw together, has a flavor profile that works will with any protein, and only has a handful of ingredients. (It’s also true that when dealing with these strong, bitter flavors, it’s better to keep it simple.) Give it a try and see if your family becomes any fonder of these healthy veggies!
