I must say that broccoli was not my favorite veggie a few years ago. But now I have developed an immense liking towards it that I prefer broccoli over my once-upon-a-time favorite veggie cauliflower. Luckily my son likes it too and I mostly combine it with his favorite pasta. This is one of my favorite ways to finish up the hugs bags of broccoli I buy from Costco.
You will find a version of the roasted broccoli here and today I decided to jazz it up with some Indian spices. There is really nothing much to the recipe and you can add all your favorite spices. You can have it as a snack or toss it with pasta for a healthy meal. I really wish that along with being yummy, the dish was photogenic too. I spent a whole bunch of time and after 77 pictures I called it a day . Off to the recipe.
