The Best Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Living with our friends has been a serious vacation! All of our “family dinners” seem like an true occasion— complete with cocktails! It’s been really tough for me to turn down delicious bottles of wine. 😳

Tonight, we enjoyed a wonderful bottle of Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc. I remember this wine from a dinner at Piattini Wine Cafe many months ago. It’s excellent! Light and fruity with a crisp finish!

With dinner, we enjoyed the best Roasted Broccoli recipe, which my sister-in-law first made for Mal and me when we visited her in Seattle last June. I still can’t believe it has taken us this long to make it ourselves!


  • 2 large heads of broccoli
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • Cut broccoli into florets
  • Toss florets in olive oil and sugar
  • Cover baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or tin foil
  • Spread broccoli florets on baking sheet
  • Broil for 5-7 minutes until edges of florets turn brown and crispy

With the Roasted Broccoli, Mal made Sesame Soy Chicken with couscous and brown rice mixed together on the side.

The Roasted Broccoli was a huge hit! It was crunchy and slightly sweet. Everyone LOVED it!

For dessert, I enjoyed an Oatmeal Raisin Bar, which Marie and I baked last night. Mmmmm!

Check out Murphy making the moves on Bella! He’s such a stud-muffin! 😉

I cant’ believe it’s back to work tomorrow! After all of the work I did today, I’m relaxing for the rest of the night!

Good night, bloggies!


  1. This looks delicious! I have such a hard time getting my husband to eat any cooked vegetables, but I believe he will like this. Can’t wait to try it.

  2. Both of these recipes sound very good and delicious. I love broccoli and oatmeal. I made oatmeal bars before but not like this. This sound much better. I will try both recipes.

  3. Broccoli is a good veggie and a good source of calcium. I eat all kinds of veggies. 2yrs ago my broccoli got as big as 2 grown men fists together and it sure tasted good and melted in my mouth.
