OVEN ROASTED BROCCOLI
A very simple but delicious side or base to a meal - one of my 'oldies' but still favourites, and because the spices can be varied it can taste very different each time.
2-3 broccoli heads cut into florets and stems chopped into bite sized prices
your favourite spices
Place the broccoli pieces on a roasting tray covered in aluminium and give them a vey light drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle your favourite spices (turmeric powder, garlic powder and Sumac as one variation, OR Mediterranean spices with chilli as another variation) and then roast in the oven covered with a piece of aluminium foil till soft. It is ready to eat, OR you can then remove the foil and cook it under the grill till slightly browned and crisp on the edges and soft on the inside. I cooked it in a fan forced oven with the grill option for about 1/2 hour or just over at 180 degrees. But as all ovens are a little different, play with it and keep and eye on it so it does not burn! Enjoy.
