Where did roasted broccoli and cheddar cheese recipe come from?
This recipe comes from a friend of mine, who has been living low carb for quite a while. Oven roasted broccoli is a staple at their house. Broccoli is lightly steamed before it is placed on a lined sheet pan. You can sprinkle seasonings of your choice on there, I am partial to a touch of salt and some garlic powder. The broccoli is topped with cheddar cheese, and it is baked for about 15 minutes until the cheese is fully cooked.
You could also make this recipe with frozen broccoli as well. Costco sells frozen broccoli in large bags that are perfect for a quick and easy side dish. If you use frozen broccoli you will not need to steam the broccoli before you prepare this dish. Frozen broccoli is already lightly cooked.
