I think anyone who's trying to follow some kind of healthier eating plan needs to have a good collection of vegetable side dishes in their recipe collection, and this Quick Roasted Broccoli with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds is a recipe I've been making for years.

I love broccoli, and I think one reason broccoli is so popular (well, with most people) is that it tastes pretty good no matter how you prepare it. You can eat it raw, boil, steam, stir-fry, or roast it, and unless it's completely overcooked, broccoli will taste pretty good.
But even though a lot of cooking methods for broccoli will work, I think roasting broccoli concentrates the flavor in the best possible way. This batch of broccoli turned out so well that I ate nearly a pound of it and called it dinner. It was also so easy to make and so diet-friendly, I knew after one bite this recipe would be a hit with anyone who tried it. (And don't throw away those broccoli stems either!)
