Roasted Broccoli! Guest Post from Chris Wimmer (Health Smart Living)

Hey Everyone! We have a special guest writer for this week, Chris Wimmer from He's sharing one of his favourite recipes for roasted broccoli. His blog has a myriad of recipes that all look so unique a well as healthy! Some stand outs we spotted were: Buffalo Chicken Quinoa and Kale Fried Rice! There is also extensive info about how to juice and grow your own hydroponic veggies! So cool!

So welcome, Chris!

Broccoli…This is my great food challenge and would guess others share this challenge with me. While I know broccoli is packed with v itamins and fibre, I still have bad memories of getting a big head of broccoli on my plate as a kid. These memories have made me hesitate to ever try cooking it at home. However, as an adult I've learned a few simple recipes that make broccoli not only tolerate but actually delicious. Today I'm sharing a super simple yet tasty Roasted Broccoli recipe.

Why I love this dish. Pre-cutting the broccoli into bite sized chunks makes it super easy to eat (or scarf) . Sawing through bit chunks of veggies is a turn off for me. The small pieces of broccoli also gives you more spaces for the toasted panko/parmesan to stick and work its roasting magic.

We are going to our annual summer visit to my parents next and I can't wait to show my mom that I will finally eat broccoli.

Roast Broccoli Recipe

1 pound broccoli; trimmed into bite sized florets
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Put broccoli, olive oil, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside for later.
Spread bread crumbs on a cookie sheet and toast at 425 degrees of 2 minutes. remove bread crumbs and add to mixing bowl.
Spread broccoli mixture across the cookie sheet and roast for 8 to 19 minutes.
Remove from oven, move to serving dish, and mix in 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.

Chris Wimmer is from where he blogs about cooking and juicing as ways to improve your health.

Thanks so much Chris for the cheesy and delicious looking broccoli recipe! We're always looking for ways to amp up our cruciferous vegetables and this looks like a perfect way to do it!!


  1. T5RX Eating balanced meals that are healthy is rather helpful and important. Supplements are not the only way veggies be getting the nutrition that you may need. Of course even though we eat good foods we are rarely getting all the nutrition needed because of cooking folks and processing them.
