Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower with Garlic and Avocado Salad

The following recipe is easy, quick, tasty and healthy.
Broccoli and cauliflower are rich in vitamin C, and garlic adds antioxidant. Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E and B, and folic acid.


1/2 of an avocado
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cut cauliflower florets
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Paprika, pepper flakes, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste
Juice of half lemon or lime.  I used half a lime


1. Combine the broccoli and cauliflower in a bowl.  Toss with oil, garlic, paprika, pepper flakes, sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.  Arrange on a baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees, stirring once, for about 20 minutes or until lightly brown.  Return to the bowl and toss with the lemon/lime juice.

2. Slice avocado and season with salt and freshly ground pepper

3.  Arrange on a plate and enjoy!
