Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower with Wine and Cheese. Fresh broccoli and cauliflower are roasted together in a bath of white wine, vegetable broth and extra-virgin olive oil, then topped with panko bread crumbs and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and roasted for a few minutes more until the cheese is melted. Light, simple and delicious, this casserole for broccoli and cauliflower is so suprisingly flavorful, you’ll want to make this healthy side over and over again.
It’s THAT good!
We love roasting these two vegetables together this way. It’s not only a no-fuss recipe, it makes a large-size platter to serve as a wonderful side dish for family and friends.
The Parmesan cheese along with the white wine is what truly gives this dish the wonderful aromatic Italian flavors that’s hard to resist. A platter filled with roasted vegetables like this is like a spin on a casserole without all the cream and extra calories added.
Broccoli and cauliflower roasted in a bath of wine has become “the new favorite” in our house. We love making this side dish when entertaining a dinner party. It’s so good and simple to make, it comes out perfect every time. Never disappoints.
Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower with Wine and Cheese was the first platter that disappeared at the our table during a dinner party. The vegetables turn out so tender and full-flavored.
Along with the Parmesan cheese, I also added some panko breadcrumbs on top to give them a nice mild crunch. But, you should omit them if you need this dish to be gluten-free.
If your cooking for Easter or Passover, this dish is perfect to serve with any roast. You can even roast them at the same time you’re roasting the meat. Enjoy!
Have a beautiful day! And, thanks for stopping by!
