Taste buds tired of steamed broccoli? Try roasting it. Roasting brings a whole new flavor dimension to broccoli. Just four simple ingredients make this side dish a tasty -- and easy -- way to add more veggies to your diet. Broccoli is an antioxidant superfood because it contains a variety of antioxidants that may protect against different cancers and heart disease. It's good for your bones, too, because it contains calcium. Using spices like garlic and crushed red pepper keeps this super dish low in sodium.

Makes 6 servings (about 1 cup per serving)

Ingredients

6 cups fresh broccoli floret (cut into smaller pieces if necessary)
2 tablespoons olive oil
¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 garlic cloves, finely minced

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 F.

2. Combine broccoli florets in bowl with olive oil, pepper and garlic. Toss to combine well and coat all pieces.

3. Place broccoli in 10 x 15 x 1-inch jelly roll pan that is lightly coated with cooking spray.

4. Roast 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once during cooking, until broccoli is slightly tender and beginning to brown but not burned.
