Blasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

Blasted broccoli and cauliflower is a great way for kids to experience vegetables. The roasting part of it really enhances the flavor. Children who think that broccoli tastes like grass will be pleasantly surprised.  It is really easy

Blasted broccoli and Cauliflower

preheat the oven to 450  (or I use the grill in summertime)

1 small head of cauliflower
1 bunch of broccoli
2 Tablespoons oil
salt and pepper

Wash and cut up the vegetables into florettes, cutting larger peices in half.
toss the broccoli and cauliflower with the oil and salt and pepper

pour out on a baking sheet and pop into a hot oven. Stir every five minutes or so.  Cook until browned and slightly crispy (about 30 min)  Let it get crispy brown that is where the flavor develops.Watch so it does not burn.

can be eaten hot or at room temperature. This is a real pleasant change from the old boiled or steamed vegetables.
