Oven Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

Oven Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

This easy recipe is unbelievable!  I find myself craving Oven Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower.  You can toss in what ever vegetables you have in the fridge!

Drizzle a little Olive oil over the broccoli and cauliflower Kosher, salt and black pepper to taste and toss well.  Bake, on a sheet pan, for 35 - 45 minutes at 400f.  It should look crunchy and a little dried out, but trust me it's delicious.
