Tasty Roasted Broccoli


I rarely feature broccoli on the blog, because, well... it's broccoli. Boring. Filled with vitamins, but sort of boring. So I decided to jazz it up a bit. Roasting brings out the natural flavor and sweetness. Tossed with tangy lemon and crunch walnuts, it is far from boring. Walnuts add healthy omega-3's B vitamins, and protein. Also, recent research suggests eating walnuts can help improve memory and cognitive function.
