What I Ate This Week + A Super Easy Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Roasted Broccoli Recipe
I make this easy roasted broccoli recipe at least twice a month, sometimes more. It’s so simple, it hardly qualifies as a recipe, but since we had it this week, I thought I’d include it in this post. Here’s what you do:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Place broccoli florets on baking sheet and spray with additional olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoning salt. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Yes, it’s that easy! And it’s delicious. If you’re watching your salt intake, leave out the seasoning salt and add thick slices of garlic (while roasting) or lemon juice (after roasting) instead.

Here’s what else I ate this week:

Rotini with Caramelized Onions & Roasted BroccoliRotini with Caramelized Onions & Roasted Broccoli // …and this is what I did with the roasted broccoli. I tossed it with whole wheat rotini, caramelized (well, almost caramelized–I was impatient) onions, and jarred pasta sauce. It’s easy, it tastes homemade, and it’s healthier than overloading the pasta with cheese.

Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini with Parmesan PankoVegetarian Stuffed Zucchini with Parmesan Panko // I’ve never met a stuffed zucchini recipe that I didn’t like, but my husband usually isn’t a fan. This is the only stuffed zucchini recipe that he really enjoys.

Wild Mushroom & Potato Pizza with Walnut PestoWild Mushroom & Potato Pizza // This was our dinner on Saturday. We can’t get enough of this pizza!

Roasted Cauliflower with Cashew Raisin VinaigretteRoasted Cauliflower with Cashew Raisin Vinaigrette // I first made this in April, mostly just to use up raisins that had been sitting in the pantry for months. But we ended up really liking it. Raisin vinaigrette–who knew?!

Oh, I can relate with that. I, personally, think that you don’t need to change a thing. If you find perfection….which I happen to think roasted veggies are… change it?!

I do the same with my broccoli! Sometimes I’ll throw in shrimp for the latter half of the roasting, after seeing that in a food column a few years ago. Quick dinner. Boy, your dinners look good. 🙂

Wow all of those recipes look incredible. I love roasting broccoli! We eat A LOT of it over here and am I am always looking for new ways to make it. My favorite has to be roasting it with thick slices of garlic. The pesto on my blog comes in a pretty close second though 🙂

I never would have thought of potatoes and mushrooms on pizza but it sounds so intriguing and delicious!

I need to try that pesto! I’ve heard of all different kinds of pesto, but never broccoli. 🙂 And I love broccoli!

I know the pizza sounds weird, but it’s so good, I promise! I never would have thought to put potatoes on pizza until we had it at a restaurant and I totally fell in love with it, excessive carbs and all.

I know that I am always going to be jealous when I click on your posts. We moved this week and are in limbo at extended stay so our food is boring and way to unhealthy. Yuck. I hate how I feel at the end of the week of eating unhealthy!

I hope your move went well! I think the entire month before and after we moved to NC, we were eating take out. And then it spiraled into having frozen yogurt for dinner and Krispy Kreme for lunch. I felt AWFUL after that, so I totally feel your pain!

I’ll have to look for that–I wonder if they sell it at supermarkets? I’m supposed to eat more salt because I have low blood pressure, but I like to limit it when I’m cooking for my husband’s sake and then add extra to my portion.

I have never thought of RAISINS in salad dressing…which is odd because I use dates as a sweetener!!! Great idea. Thanks so much. I will be trying this one out soon (:
