Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Feta

Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Feta

Sunday was a wild, busy day. We spent the morning outside, then rushed off to a family lunch, ran some errands, rushed home, the kids ate dinner and then it was off to Will’s track practice. By the time we got home for the evening, it was late and time for the tired children to go to bed. In short order, they were rushed off to bed, read short books and tucked in.

Once that was all done, I had a second to just stop. In the rush to feed the kids at a decent hour and before track, I didn’t take the time to feed myself. And I was hungry. Obviously.

And it was in that hunger that I first made this recipe. It was light, but satisfying. The smokiness of roasted broccoli went so well with the toasty garlic and browned feta. Yum. And I liked it so much that I made it again the next next for everyone to enjoy at dinnertime. Will loved it. Paige and Shawn? Not so much.

If you like broccoli and garlic and feta … which are basically the only ingredients … then you will love this. I swear.

    Wow! My three favorite ingredients in one dish! I can’t imagine anything yummier than this. I bet I can even get the boyfriend to eat this.

    I can’t believe I’ve never thought of pairing feta with broccoli! Wow, what a great idea. I love using Parmesan when I roast it, now I’ve got to try it with feta! ASAP.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    try adding mushrooms to broccoli when roasting and then sun-dried tomatoes and then, serve over whole-wheat pasta. Add more oil and warm slightly to melt feta. so good!

    Om nom nom, replaced the feta with cheese whiz and added bacon bits. So right and yet so wrong. You’re a unicorn with a star on her forehead, Sarah. Thank you.
