Rebecca's Roasted Broccoli Crowns

Another incredibly easy recipe, and one to use when you are dragging yourself into the kitchen because you don't really want to cook.  These roasted gems are quite the reward.  

The "before" stares you in the face with neat rows of vibrant green and the chorus 'I-love-myself-for-eating-healthy'.   The "after" is hot, bursting with flavour, and comforting.

Trim the broccoli so you have the crowns and a bit of stem.  Quickly toss them in a vinaigrette (a little olive oil, s&p, and red wine vinegar. Maybe a drop of chili oil.).  Arrange in rows and bake at 375 on parchment paper until nicely browned. Careful not to burn your reward!   

This food magic was brought to me (and now you) by one of the best home cooks I know, Rebecca.  Here's to missed friends and good food!
