Sometimes its not that a child doesn’t like a certain food, sometimes they may prefer it cooked a certain way. I found this to be true with the ever-hardy vegetable, broccoli. I tried different seasoning, adding cheddar cheese (who doesn’t like cheese?) and cooking in different methods. Typically when we are in a time crunch I will steam them in a glass bowl inside the microwave. I never boil, but love roasting broccoli. The first time (and now the only way I make it) I added, Parmesan cheese (the one in the jar). I also seasoned it with garlic powder, salt, and Greek seasoning. My son loved it! I finally found a way to get my little man to eat these fiber packed veggie! So, how do you guys like to make your broccoli?
Stacey’s Parmesan Roasted Broccoli
A head of Broccoli (stems cut off) ( or just use a bag of Smart Vegetables)
Olive oil (to coat)
1/4-1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese
Greek seasoning (to taste)
Salt (to taste)
Garlic Powder (to taste)
cut broccoli, de-stemming it
Add olive oil to coat, add garlic powder, salt (to taste), and Greek seasoning, I give a few generous shakes to cover ( I never measure, lol). Add 1/4 cup of Parmesan Cheese, if you like it cheesier, by all means, add more.
Roast in oven set to 400 for about 20-25 minutes
