Easy Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower Recipe
Today Recipes | Easy Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower Recipe – Broccoli and cauliflower take on a whole new identity when cooked with high heat and only a little olive oil and seasoning. This makes a tasty vegetarian meal when served with rice and a yogurt sauce, but I also like it as a side dish for grilled lamb chops or grilled shrimps. Enjoy!

Tips & Notes
This recipe also works for roasting Brussels sprouts. Replace the broccoli and cauliflower with 1½ to 1¾ pounds fresh Brussels sprouts, brown ends trimmed and yellow leaves removed, then toss with olive oil, salt and black pepper (no garlic or red pepper). Increase roasting time to 25 to 30 minutes or until sprouts are tender inside and slightly crispy on the outside.
Another substitution idea: Sweet potatoes or any winter squash. Simply roast seasoned sweet potato wedges or winter squash halves for 30 to 50 minutes or until soft and fork-tender.
