Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

This recipe for Parmesan Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower is one of my family’s favorite side dishes.  It’s one of those easy recipes that always ends up on our holiday dinner table.  It has even been known to turn non-broccoli and cauliflower people (like my husband!) into broccoli lovers!

When I married my husband, I knew he was not a big veggie fan.  He would eat a salad or corn or peas, but there was no way he would eat things like broccoli or cauliflower.

I’ll never forget the first time my Uncle Carmen made this recipe.  My husband looked at it and turned up his nose.  No way was he eating it.  Everyone else at the table raved, though.  And, by some grace of god, I finally got him to try a bite of mine.

Well, that was it.  He loved it!  I think he even ended up having thirds that night.  From that point forward, whenever I make this recipe for a family dinner, I need to make a double recipe.  One to have for dinner and one for my husband.

Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of garlic and parmesan cheese to make my man happy!  Thanks to this trick, I’ve now gotten him to love Parmesan Roasted Green Beans, Rosemary Sweet Potatoes and Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts.  Needless to say, this recipe makes it on to every Thanksgiving table in my family.  We all love it and just can’t get enough of it!
