Kath’s Immune Boosting Oven Roasted Broccoli

Garden Eats Broccoli

Everyone wants to be healthy, especially during “cold and flu season.”ย  Here’s a recipe that’ll make your immune system laugh at the flu. Oh, and it tastes great too. Besides the antioxidants that broccoli already boasts, I add brocco sprouts and garlic for an extra pow. The sprouts are loaded with a compound call glucoraphanin(glp). The glp in a handful of sprouts is equal to a few large heads of mature broccoli and provide 50x more cancer fighting benefits than broccoli alone. We’re gonna add a warming herb, garlic, for some great flavor and more immune boosting. Adding an organic meat or gluten free pasta makes this a meal.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 head organic broccoli
  • 1 cup lightly packed brocco sprouts
  • 5 cloves sliced garlic
  • 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water

Putting It All Together

1. Preheat oven to 375.

2. Wash broccoli, cut into 1/2 slices and place in baking dish.

3. Sprinkle sliced garlic over broccoli.

4. Pour 1/8 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup water over broccoli and cover.

5. Roast for 35-45 minutes, depending on desired tenderness.

6. Remove from oven and toss in brocco sprouts. Cover until ready to serve.

If desired, grated pecorino romano cheese adds a final touch. If adding meat or pasta, mix it in the same time as the sprouts and let sit for 5 minutes, covered.
