Crispy Roasted Broccoli

Straight From The Pros

This recipe for Crispy Roasted Broccoli is from a Sur La Table cooking class. A professional chef teaches all their classes, and this recipe is from Cast Iron: American Comfort Favorites. Every item on the menu is tasty, but the broccoli recipe is my favorite. Roasting broccoli enhances the flavors and gives a special crunch.
