Broiled "Burned" Broccoli

     Hello all!  Looking for a great healthy side dish?

    Or want to expand your vegetable consumption!?  Need those kids to eat healthier?  Check out this great side dish!  It is kid approved!!!

     So everyone knows Broccoli is one of the most difficult vegetables to get your kids, and even some adults to eat.  However it is one of the best ones for you, there are so many good vitamins, minerals and other aspects the vegetable does.  This post would be to long, so in short it really is a super food!  Even Chef will be the first to admit he don't eat enough of them his wife will tell you this too.  He  knows the importance of vegetables and tries to cook them in a way he feels you will enjoy.  Below is a great idea chef  came across at a friends house and loved it ever since!  He even had had kids try and like it!

     So how does one put something like "broccoli" and "burned" together to make something good to eat!  Honestly we have no idea, maybe two negatives equal a positive?  We will admit it is odd but I never know till I tried this new side dish how much I would love it!  We think the crunch along with the seasonings cooked in with the oil just makes them easy and tasteful to eat.

     We actually broil it.  Yes we cook them at a high temperature with some seas onions and oil and give it a  good char.  The nice crunch and bit of char taste makes them easier I would say for me that is to eat and enjoy!  There are many ways to cook broccoli however this one always works for us and I hope you enjoy it to!

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Total Time: 25 Minutes

1 Head of Broccoli
1.5 Ounces Olive Oil
1 Table Spoon Garlic Powder 
1 Table Spoon Salt
1 Table Spoon Pepper

Set your oven to broil
Take your broccoli and trim them down cutting them to smaller pieces.
Place them in a large bowl.
Drizzle olive oil over them.  Just a bit you don't have to soak them!
Lightly season them with salt, pepper and anything else you would like.
Place on a cooking sheet.
Place in the oven and watch carefully for about 20-25 minutes.
When you take them out they will look burned, that is good!  They will have some crisp and texture to them.  You can also cook them shorter or longer.  This is all up to you.

Here is the end result.

    We also do other vegetables like cauliflower this way too.  We found it really works and even our chef loves them and will have seconds and thirds!  This side dish is also so easy and you can just have it cooking while your main dish is being worked or cooking too.  The dish won't take up to much of your time.  You can also prep the broccoli early in the day to so your are fully ready if you are having a party. Check out the video to see how Chef makes it!

    We do hope you liked the video and do try this great side dish!  We do know that some of our vegetable dishes have lower views unfortunately.  However eating healthy can having great taste can happen!  If you liked this post and video please share it but more importantly, make it!  We really think you will enjoy it and use it more often in your regular meal rotation!

Give it a try, your kids might like it and surprise you.  

Always remember, cooking should be Fun, so have Fun doing it!
