Festive Eating - Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

by -

Here is a really quick and easy favourite of mine to serve with dinner – it’s also very detoxifying as it uses cruciferous veg.

Serves:  6-8

Ready in:  about 50 minutes


2 heads cauliflower

1 large bunch of broccoli crowns

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Festive Zest option:

Lemon & orange juice


Lemon and orange zest 



1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Step 1:  Preheat your oven to 350°F.  Wash and cut the vegetables into bite-size pieces.

Step 2:  In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower and broccoli with the oil, salt and pepper until coated evenly and spread on a large baking sheet.

Step 3: Place in the oven and bake until fork tender and lightly browned, about 45 minutes. 

To add a little festive zest:  Whisk together the juice of half a lemon, half an orange, and 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil in a small bowl until combined. Drizzle the sauce over the dish and add a little grated orange and lemon peel, along with some chopped fresh parsley (if you like) and serve!
