Roasted Broccoli with Caesar and Parmesan

Rule #303: Sometimes a little trickery is necessary.

Getting vegetables into kids’ bellies (and husbands’ bellies for that matter) can sometimes be tricky, but not anymore with this Roasted Broccoli with Caesar and Parmesan. Just roast your broccoli florets with olive oil, salt, and pepper then toss with Caesar dressing, Parmesan cheese, and some pine nuts as soon as it’s all cooked!

Easy Roasted Broccoli

Our kids (and we) absolutely love this! I love not having to haggle to get the littles to shove veggies in their adorable little mouths.

Roasted Broccoli with Caesar and Parmesan

First, make sure your broccoli florets are cut into nice little bite-sized (ish) pieces.

Then, toss with 4 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt, and 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper.

Next, roast at 400 for 18-20 minutes, until broccoli is tender but not mushy.

Finally, immediately toss with 2 heaping tbs. Caesar dressing (Marie’s is our favorite), 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, and a handful of pine nuts.

Just look at those little bites of delicious, vitamin-filled florets! Trickery, indeed.

I like to garnish the roasted broccoli with pine nuts to add a little texture to the dish. Plus it makes it look a little purtier.
