Whenever any one tells me that they don't really like broccoli, I ask them if they have tried roasting it before. Roasted broccoli is so much better than steamed broccoli. The charred, nutty edges and caramelized edges creates this deep, rich flavor that is seriously delicious. And that amazing, roasted broccoli taste is the center of this simple vegetarian dinner. Sweet cherry tomatoes and nutty broccoli are roasted until golden brown and tossed with quinoa, Parmesan cheese, and a touch of lemon for a yummy and hearty dish.

Looking for more protein? Throw some chickpeas onto the roasting pan as well or add some cooked chicken, shrimp, or ground turkey if you don't need a meatless dish.
