This is the time of year where healthy veggie dishes take the back burner. Because school and work are in action and the last thing you have the energy for when you get home is to think of a healthy side dish. And because the holidays are upon us, which means cookies and treats win over veggies every time. And because it currently looks like a bomb went off in my kitchen and all my pantry foods are in boxes in the garage and my culinary life is in shambles thanks to this kitchen renovation…but I digress.

So how great would it be if you had a tasty little veggie recipe in your back pocket to pull out when your busy schedule or holiday temptations are threatening your veggies? Answer: so great. Which is why today we’re whipping up this roasted broccoli with lemon and goat cheese!

This roasted broccoli is perfect for everyday kind of dinners, but it’s also great as a Thanksgiving side dish! You’ll just roast some broccoli and shallots until soft and delicious, about 30 minutes. While that’s going, whip together a simple dressing with lemon juice, olive oil, and basil. Toast up some pine nuts for a little crunch, and sprinkle in some goat cheese for creamy zing. Toss it all together and you, my friend, have a really delicious side dish to serve up tonight.
