I think baby broccoli is my new favorite vegetable!  Have you seen it in the grocery store?  I’ve walked past it many times, but recently decided I’d give it a try.  It is very similar to broccoli, but has a slightly sweeter taste to it and doesn’t have that somewhat “bitter” taste to it that broccoli sometimes has.  Even if you’re not a big fan of broccoli I’d encourage you to give it a try! You eat more of the stem vs regular broccoli where you mostly get the florets.  I’ve cooked it a few different ways, but this is by far my favorite.

All you do is preheat your oven to 300 degrees F and lightly spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray or canola oil spray.   I use a small knife to cut the very ends off (don’t cut off a lot of the stem!) and to trim any leafs off.   Place your baby broccoli evening on the sheet and spray tops with cooking spray.  Sprinkle on some salt, garlic salt, pepper, or whatever other spice you love.  (I love it with my garlic and sea salt grinder from Trader Joe’s!) Bake for 15 minutes or until they have turned a nice bright green and the florets have just a hint of brown and look crispy.  Best served right away.
