Ok, so before going gluten-free, I was never a vegetable eater. But once you take most of the sugar out of your diet, things start to taste different. So I've been a veggie eater for the past year and been loving it. However, broccoli was always one of those veggies that I could only eat in very small pieces and usually smothered in something not healthy. A friend of mine posted a recipe for roasted broccoli on facebook and I was intrigued. I love roasting veggies so I thought I would try it. Seriously, could have eaten just this for dinner and been happy (actually had the leftovers for breakfast...yes it's that good). I'm sure many of you veggie eaters already love the stuff, but for those trying to break into the veggie loving world, I thought I would share.

Hope I linked the site correctly.

She said she didn't wash the broccoli because heating would kill the germs. Germs wouldn't be my worry - pesticides would! And even if it were organic broccoli, well, the fertilizer (manure) might have splashed up onto it during a heavy rainstorm. I would DEFINITELY wash it first.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

The recipe looked great minus the not washing it first. It actually gave me the idea to make roasted broccoli for dinner since my husband and girls have never had it, well it was a hit. The two year old asked for broccoli for breakfast this morning :)

We roast pretty much every vegetable including broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, parsnips, turnips, green beans, leeks, fennel, kale - you name it, we roast it. Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of the vegetables, especially if they are allowed to caramelize a little in the pan. In fact, we never boil vegetables unless it is required for a certain type of soup or whatever.

One of the best things I ever tasted was corn that was cooked in the fireplace. It was all brown and carmelized and I loved it. Of corse that was many years ago, and now, with my corn intolerance I know I will never try it again. But the broccoli and cauliflower sound good.

That sounds lovely! I have never had it done in a fireplace but we often grill it.

Forgot to mention roasted asparagus and mushrooms.
