Oven Roasted Broccoli

इस व्यंजन को हिन्दी में पढ़ें

Broccoli is a green vegetable, rich in dietary fibers, vitamin B6, Vitamin A, minerals and also omega3 fatty acids. Broccoli belongs to the same family as cauliflower and cabbage. Here we are making a very simple yet delicious and of course healthy appetizer with broccoli. I have used oven to make this dish, however it can be made in the barbeque, or even on gas stove. I have served oven roasted broccoli with hummus (a chickpeas spread). You can also serve it with thick mint raita. Try this healthy preparation and please do share your comments. Happy cooking, Shuchi
