SIMPLE ROASTED BROCCOLI

~ Can You Stay for Dinner?

2 heads broccoli, cut into florets and rounds
1 T. oil of your choice
1-1 1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Lay broccoli pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Pour the oil into a small cup, dip a pastry brush into the oil, then brush each broccoli piece until lightly coated.  Sprinkle with salt.  Roast for 15-18 minutes or until broccoli tips have started to blacken and they can be easily pierced with a fork.  Makes two servings.

Notes: I have a fancier roasted broccoli recipe on this site and though it's good, I prefer this simple method.  So far we've made it with peanut and olive oils, and both are delicious.  We've also used cauliflower instead of broccoli and liked it.
