An easy and quick side dish that is not only healthy but actually tastes great too! Paleo, gluten-free, Whole30, and can easily be made Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) too

I realized recently when talking to some coworkers that a lot of the recipes I post here are more intricate than the way I actually eat on an everyday basis. I mean, I love to make things like scones and peppercorn beef, but my everyday style is super simple and fast. I don't even usually use a recipe for a side dish like this roasted broccoli, but my coworkers gently reminded me that not everyone has been doing this as long as I have and has dishes like this floating around in their brains. So thank you coworkers for reminding me to stop assuming everyone is a walking cookbook and that y'all want easy peasy things to cook after a long day at work or watching the kiddos.

Roasted Broccoli - a recipe for a quick and easy Paleo and gluten-free side dish

So this one is a little more than just plain roasted broccoli as it also has red pepper flakes and garlic to give it flavor, but it's still something you can have ready to put in the oven in less than 10 minutes. And that's if you don't get pre-cut broccoli florets and have to peel your garlic. If for example, you get the pre-cut stuff from Costco and the pre-peeled or minced garlic you'll fly through this even faster.

Roasted Broccoli - a recipe for a quick and easy Paleo and gluten-free side dish

I love roasted veggies since they get a nice, robust flavor and roasting them in fat really makes them tasty. I, for the record, HATE steamed broccoli and won't touch the stuff with a 10 foot pole, so if you hate that and are skeptical that you'd like roasted broccoli I urge you to give it a chance as you might find you really enjoy it. This one is of course Paleo but also Whole30 compliant and can be made for Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) if you exclude the red pepper flakes and pepper.

Here's a quick video I put together to show you how ridiculously easy this is:
