One of the things a lot of newer diabetics struggle with is increasing the amount of vegetables they eat in each meal. You don’t want to be eating the same old steamed vegetables every day. You have to make them full of flavor and fun to eat!
Oven roasted broccoli is so versatile and easy to make delicious and I urge you to experiment with it a bit but first try this easy and wonderful recipe! It only uses a few ingredients and is still awesome if you omit the garlic.
4 cups fresh broccoli cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 cup olive oil (I’ve also used coconut oil and it still turned out great)
1/2 tsp garlic salt
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
2/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare your baking sheet. You may need two depending on how big your sheets are. Simply line them with foil so nothing sticks.
Toss the broccoli and garlic in a bowl. Drizzle the olive oil over the top and mix to coat. Spread the broccoli evenly on your baking sheets and sprinkle the garlic salt over the top.
Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
When it’s done put it back in the bowl and mix all of the cheese in. Serve while it’s still hot.
