Bryce watched me write the title of this blog post and said, “Literally my favorite vegetable side dish you make.” Mine too. I make this all of the time. I’d say nearly once a week, usually with risotto. It’s so easy to throw together on a week night and it roasts in the oven while you cook up whatever you want with it. Tonight we actually had veggie burgers and potato wedges. Seems like an odd thing to pair with that meal, but it was really refreshing to have with heavier food.
Roasted Lemon Broccoli & Cauliflower:
2 heads Broccoli
1 head Cauliflower
Salt & Pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Break down your broccoli and cauliflower and throw them into a large rectangular baking dish. Cover with a few glugs of olive oil to lightly coat the vegetables and season very well with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix with your hands and add more seasonings to your liking. Slice your lemon and evenly space the lemon slices throughout the vegetables.
Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the vegetables are cooked and the broccoli and cauliflower start to get a little bit charred on the ends.
