Garlic Roasted Broccoli

Balsamic vinegar's sweet-tart flavor enhances roasted broccoli spears seasoned with garlic. You can conveniently pop this dish into the oven while a beef roast or turkey is resting. —Nella Parker, Hersey, Michigan

    Wish I had found this recipe when the kids were little! What a great way to make broccoli. We make it all the time now!

    This is a good and easy twist on broccoli. I used slightly less oil but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My husband loved it. The tang of the balsamic vinegar was a bit much for me; I will use less vinegar on my portion if I make this again. I love broccoli and felt the acidity masked the taste of the broccoli. My husband is not as fond of broccoli and so he loved the flavor. It's good either way but how good is a matter of taste.

    It was absolutely delicious AND I completely forgot about the balsamic vinegar at the time will try a drizzle with it!

    This was great! I did half broccoli, half cauliflower, used half the oil and vinegar, to save calories. Turned out great!
