Lemon Roasted Spicy Broccoli

Side Items > Keto Recipes

Side dishes have become something that we argue about in my house. From who has to make it, to how long it’ll take while cooking the main meal – it usually ends up being a salad because nobody wants to do the extra work.

Luckily though, roasted broccoli is quickly becoming a staple here because of the simplicity of making it. It’s practically pre-heating your oven, seasoning some broccoli, and stuffing it in the oven for some fantastic hands-off flavors to develop. It doesn’t get much better than that! Not only is there subtle hints of lemon and acidity running through the broccoli, but the saltiness of the cheese and the spice of the chili flakes bring everything together as a whole. The natural sweetness of the broccoli shines in this, balancing everything to perfection and then some.

Oh, and guess what – it’s kid friendly too! You normally won’t see kids reaching over to a pile of broccoli and snatching a few pieces to snack on…well unless you’re in Hidden Valley where vegetables rule the world. But I had my niece and nephew over when I had made these, thinking they wouldn’t be touching a single green that stepped foot out of the kitchen and boy was I wrong! I actually got asked to make more! Surprising, I know, but if you’re having trouble with trying to serve your kids vegetables, give this simple recipe a try and see what happens – definitely worth a shot!
