One of our favorite veggie recipes is one that takes broccoli spears and a handful of brussels sprouts, throws them into a super hot oven and they come out roasted in a most delightful way. The little browned leaves and spots just add to the flavor and character of this dish!
2 Large Bunches of Broccoli cut into long-stemmed florets
1/2 Cup Brussels Sprouts (cut large ones in half)
5 Tbs Olive Oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly Ground Pepper
5 Garlic Cloves, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese (or Nutritional Yeast to make it vegan)
1 Lemon – zested and juiced
2 Tbs julienned Fresh Basil
Roast in the oven 20 to 25 minutes (give them a stir about half way through), until the tips of some of the florets are browned.
Take it out of the oven, turn into a bowl and toss with the lemon zest, juice, cheese and basil. Serve hot.
