Roasted Broccoli Side Dish

photo by sara tady ©
Forget what you know about broccoli.  Especially if what you know is steamed broccoli.  Eeek. 
Roasting broccoli is SO simple, takes 7-8 minutes, and it tastes 100% better!  The good news is you probably have all the ingredients on hand. This is not your mother's broccoli :)

1 head of broccoli
1 clove of garlic- chopped/grated
extra virgin olive oil (evoo)
red pepper flake
sesame seeds (optional)

1) pre heat oven to 400 degrees
2) cut the heads of broccoli loose from the stalk (trim from the stalk, not the head.  This keeps the florets in tact)
3) throw the broccoli on a baking sheet, add the garlic, salt, pepper, sprinkle on some red pepper flake, drizzle some evoo and use your hands to mix together.
4) pop it into the oven for about 7 minutes. Sprinkle on the sesame seed for the last minute or so.
