Roasted Broccoli – Why You Need To Try It

When you roast vegetables and crest caramelization it transforms the flavor. Yes it still tastes like broccoli, but totally different then steaming broccoli.

Roasting broccoli adds depth, flavor, that leaves you wanting more.

Why Use The Instant Pot For Roasted Broccoli

The Instant Pot is wonderful for cooking the broccoli to make it tender. Then you transfer to a pan to bake in the oven to cook the cheese and roast the broccoli head. It works well and the Instant Pot cooks the broccoli without drying it out.

What Happens If My Broccoli Head Falls Apart During Cooking

It can happen where it falls apart if your stalk is too short. If that happens the just cut up the florets and lay them flat on the baking sheet and roast that way instead of a head. It will still taste fantastic.

Why is my Broccoli Roasting Too Fast

Your oven could be running slightly hot if you find you are roasting your broccoli a little too fast to the point it’s burning.

Pull out your broccoli sooner so you don’t go from roasted to burned or lower the heat a bit and see how that works. All ovens run differently so it can be slight trial and error.

Roasted broccoli offers a great addition to any meal and brings vitamins and nutrients to the table. It’s high in fiber and low in calories and carbs. You will also find broccoli offers vitamins A, C, and K as well as folate.
