Here is the broccoli after it has been shaken in the Ziploc bag with the other ingredients. I made the mistake of putting the Parmesan cheese on it first, when the instructions require it at the end but again I don't think even that screw up was the downfall of the recipe. I put these in the oven for 23 minutes at 425. Here is what came out of the oven:
The blogger described them as "crispy and delicious" but I would call them "burnt and nasty". The florets were mostly blackened and tasted like what you would assume burnt broccoli would taste like. The stems were OK, the olive oil and minced garlic gave them some flavor but it didn't make up for the burnt tops. The blog said these were supposed to be amazing and "better than biting into a steak" but I would have much rather had the steak or even boring steamed broccoli instead. I tried a few but in the end I tossed them in the trash and opened up a can of corn to have with dinner instead. They might have been good if I had made a foil bag and steamed them in the oven, which I may try, but I would not cook them uncovered in the oven again. I encourage everyone to eat their vegetables, but I personally can't endorse this particular method.
