my new obsession: roasted broccoli

i'm fighting a major cold,
 so i've been drowning myself in vitamin c.
[nothing like overcompensating when you've alreaady lost right??]
i've consumed so many oranges over the past three days, my tummy is over it.
i remember someone telling me once that broccoli contains vitamin c, and according to, 1 cup of broccoli contains 135.2% of your required daily intake.
[who would have ever known?!]
so i thought i'd try switching things up.

last week, i saw a post that included a recipie for roasted broccoli and it has been a fabulous addition to my life.

i made it last weekend for my family's pulled pork sandwich dinner,
and i made it again last night,
and i'm going to be having it for lunch today.

i told you...i'm a little in love with this broccoli.
and it's super easy to make! her recipie is really easy to follow.

all you have to do is:
1. chop up a fresh head of broccoli (frozen may work, but i haven't tried it...),
2. drizzle with salt & pepper,
3. spread some garlic cloves throughout,
4. bake that sucker!
she says to cook for 20 minutes, but i was doing it from memory and ended up cooking mine for 45 minutes at 425 degrees. it still turned out great!
5. sprinkle with a bit (or a bunch...) of parmesean cheese
6. eat it all up.

[the recipie and photo are straight from happyday]
thank you for sharing your yummy recipie!
my immune system is forever in your debt.
