We all know that broccoli scores high points for keeping us healthy and preventing cancer. For one it is a dark green veggie, so that definitely helps! But, sometimes it can be boring…well here is a healthy and yummy recipe that gives a twist to our healthy, yet sometimes boring broccoli.
Broccoli and Tomato Bake
1 Can diced tomatoes or 3 fresh tomatoes chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Clove Garlic
Spices of choice ( I like oregano and basil)
Pinch Salt and Pepper
1. Steam broccoli to el dente, not too soft because it still has to broil in the oven and will cook a little more…
2. In a separate pan heat oil, add garlic and simmer 1 minute. Then add tomatoes. Heat for about 3 minutes. Add spices. Add dash of s&p and lemon zest, stir.
3. Put steamed broccoli in baking dish then cover with tomatoes and sprinkle with your favourite cheese.
4. Then bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until hot and cheese is melted. Or simply place under the broiler for one minute so the cheese is melted, but be sure not to burn it!
*Quick Tip: The broiler tends to be faster if you are in a hurry or need to get dinner asap!
Let stand 5 minutes so not too hot. Enjoy!
