Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan

Cabbage is good, and we eat quite a lot of different cabbages at home. Broccoli is something we eat a lot of because both the children and we adults love it.

It can get a bit monotonous to only serve traditional boiled broccoli, so we often prepare it in many other ways too.

One of our favorite ways is roasted broccoli sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. It doesn’t get much better than that!

At the same time, it’s really easy and quick to make.

You can serve this broccoli with almost any kind of dish. All the places where you would normally serve boiled broccoli.

We like to have it with everything from fish to chicken and other meat dishes.

If there is any leftover, I gladly keep them in the refrigerator, and they are also delicious cold for lunch the next day or in a salad with other ingredients.
