Garlic Broccoli

My sister discovered this in Rachael Ray and it is YUMMY! To illustrate, 6 out of 7 of my daycare kids (ages 1-5) loved it today and most asked for seconds or thirds. The one that didn't eat it is very little and refused to even try it. This is the recipe right off of Rachael's site. I actually have not tried it with the chili powder or the seasoning blend. I usually use the garlic cloves, but today used the Garlic Salt and it worked really well. I also season it with salt and pepper.

Garlic Broccoli

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, eyeball it
5 to 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped OR Garlic Salt
1 tablespoon chili powder ***(optional)
1 tablespoon grill seasoning blend (recommended:Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick Grill Mates) *** (optional)
1 large head broccoli, cut into thin, long spears (including stems)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Place extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, chili powder and grill seasoning in the bottom of a large bowl and add the broccoli spears. Toss to coat broccoli evenly then transfer to a large nonstick baking sheet. Roast the broccoli until ends are crisp and brown and stalks are tender, 17 to 20 minutes.
