Mediterranean Roasted Broccoli and Tomatoes
Share |

Broccoli is part of the cabbage family. It is typically eaten boiled or steamed, but has been increasingly eaten raw. Broccoli is a man-made plant originating from the combination of leafy crops in the Northern Mediterranean in approximately 6th century BCE and introduced to the United States in the 1920s. Broccoli is particularly high in Vitamin C, dietary fiber, and Vitamin K. The three types of broccoli include the common green broccoli known as "broccoli”, sprouting broccoli and purple broccoli which may have a purple shadow on the tips of flower buds.
