Broccoli can taste Delicious and next year's goals/plans
I understand this post will be very long because, today I am not just going to be sharing with you not only one of my favorite side dishes, but it too was my first one that I wrote on my other site (Court's Cooking blog) when I started food blogging. I too want share with you, some of my plans/goals for my blogs for the upcoming year. So here it goes.
My plans are I've decided to go back on some of my posts that I wrote and do a lot proofreading/editing. I too will do picture retakes for most of the photos of the food that I took this year and do my best to make my blogs look very professional. I also would like to make cooking videos.
My goals are to improve on becoming a better food blogger because I am extremely interested in getting sponsorships by some food brands someday. Last but definitely not least, the main reason why I created a food blog; As some of you know, I used to be pretty nervous about using the oven/stove cause of my C.P. (Cerebral Palsy). Although, ever since I have learned about my amazing gift of cooking that God has given me, I have and still am gradually discovering that I'm not as scared anymore.
In fact, within the past few months, I have found that cooking for me is incredibly therapeutic, relaxing, enjoyable, and it has been a great learning experience. My passion for it has grown quite rapidly. Now I want, and I believe God wants me to find other ways of how to share my love for cooking with other people who are abled-bodied and or have special needs by teaching them how to cook and help them feel more comfortable using a stove/oven while sharing the love of Jesus Christ.
Now finally onto today's recipe
I'm going to show you how you can make broccoli taste really yummy. For me, this side dish is very addicting. Why you might ask??? Because it is full of zest and my all time favorite – parmesan cheese. Lol, I have an obsession with it. And of course, yes, the dish does involve working with an oven which in a way is excellent cause it will help you feel more confident dealing with it. If you use the appliance often, you someday will overcome your fear of using it.
Here's the fabulous recipe:
Roasted Lemon Broccoli Parmesan
24oz broccoli florets
3 Tbsps of olive oil
Two cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C grated parmesan, divided
Juice of 1 small lemon
Two lemons, cut into wedges (Small)
Preheat oven to 425F Line a baking dish with foil and lightly grease it with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir broccoli, olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic, lemon juice, and half of the parmesan. Mix all of the flavors until well blended. Arrange broccoli in a single layer on the dish and place lemon wedges around as you see fit. Bake for twelve-fourteen minutes, or until soft. Take it out of the oven and sprinkle the remaining of the parmesan. Squeeze lemon wedges over broccoli if desired. Enjoy!
