Is Roasted Broccoli Healthy?
Yes! Broccoli is such a great vegetable for nutrients and vitamins and while roasting them may destroy a few nutrients, all cooking methods destroy a little bit as a trade-off. Having the broccoli cooked makes it easier for the body to absorb some of the nutrients it may not have gotten while eating it raw.

If you find yourself not enjoying broccoli as is, try it in different recipes, or change up the seasoning. Lemon juice, parmesan cheese, or garlic are all great and flavorful combinations that could help to make the broccoli more palatable.
