This easy Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower recipe is a great way to serve vegetables with a crunchy, flavorful texture that kids love!
My kids have heard the tales of how we ate vegetables in the Midwest in the 1970's and '80s. Everything was boiled to death, with no color or texture, let alone flavor. It wasn't until I moved to California in college that I knew they could be any different. We love trying different methods of cooking vegetables with the kids now. Our go-to easy recipe is to toss vegetables in olive oil and garlic, spread them on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Very simple, but it gives vegetables of all kinds a great texture and brings out their natural flavor. With broccoli and cauliflower, it's as easy as cutting up a fresh head of each into similarly-sized florets and roasting for 20 minutes.
