Roasted Broccoli

Talk about easy and delicious! You really can’t mess it up even if you tried!

Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, chromium and folate. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorus, choline, vitamin B1, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), potassium and copper. Sadly broccoli is notorious for being at the top of every kids least liked vegetable list. However, it is considered to be one of the worlds healthiest foods.
