Talk about a sure thing—this side dish is it. It’s ridiculously easy to prepare and OMG delicious. Something magical happens in the oven between the combination of cook time and heat that transforms an everyday (albeit superfood) veggie into an addictive side dish worthy of seconds and thirds. My crew seriously cannot get enough. Do yourself a favor and give it a shot; you’ll soon understand why I’m hooked.

Aside from my love affair with its taste, this recipe boasts plenty of health benefits. Beloved broccoli is rich in vitamin K, which can help reduce the risk for arthritis because it protects against cartilage wear and tear. Broccoli also contains sulforaphane, to help block inflammation, and it’s rich in vitamin C and fiber. Easy, tasty, and, healthy. That’s a trifecta!
