Next time you break out the broccoli, roast it and give it a pop of color with cherry tomatoes and kick of flavor with garlic. Slideshow: Fantastic Broccoli Dishes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat oven to 425°. Place the prepared broccoli and garlic slices on a baking pan. Drizzle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over the broccoli. Toss the broccoli and garlic to coat evenly with the olive oil.

Step 2    

Spread the broccoli into an even layer over the baking pan. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste. Toss the broccoli again then spread back into an even layer.

Step 3    

Roast for 10 minutes, turn the broccoli and garlic, then continue roasting for 5 more minutes, or until tender and the edges are crisped.

Step 4    

While the broccoli roasts, place the cherry tomatoes on another baking pan. Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, dried basil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper to taste.

Step 5    

Roast tomatoes for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through roasting.

Step 6    

Gently toss together the roasted broccoli and tomatoes, season with additional salt and pepper if desired, then serve.
