Roasted Broccoli with Red Peppers

This post may include affiliate links.

During the cooler and colder months of the year, roasting is a perfect way to cook vegetables, caramelizing them and bringing out their deeper flavors. Roasted broccoli with roasted red peppers is one of the easiest and tastiest vegetable side dishes. Broccoli is a nutritional powerhouse of vegetables. The health benefits of this vegetable go on and on.

Broccoli and red peppers make an easy combination. The peppers add some brightness and natural sweetness to the crisp broccoli. Bell peppers are rich in the antioxidants and vitamins listed here, where you can also find some suggestions for incorporating them into your diet.

What can this roast vegetable dish accompany? Broccoli tastes great with beef, like our Skinny Slow Cooker Pot Roast, but can be a side to any meat or poultry. The red and green make this look festive for the holidays, and it can be a healthful and easily made side dish to add to any holiday meal.

    This is one of my favorite veggie sides. I make it all the time. YUM!

    This is so easy and absolutely delish…I drizzle a little bit more olive oil over it. Although it says servings for four, I could easily eat half of it!

    I am finding skinnyms calorie counts not consistent with MyFitnessPal counts. Which one do I trust?

      Hi Lisa, that is up to you. We use a reliable and professional program to calculate our information. It is also important to note that words such as “diced”, “sliced”, or anything with a size (ie: 1 small onion) can change the way nutritional information is calculated.
