There’s a really great Mediterranean fast food chain in NYC called Maoz. I usually get the falafel salad with hummus, and then it’s on to the amazing toppings bar. There, you can get everything from chickpea salad to tabbouleh, and tons of other stuff, too. My favorite, though, is the baked broccoli and cauliflower. I end up loading my bowl with more of that than the falafel or hummus.
Of course, when I find things like that out on the town I want to re-create them at home. That’s what I did here.
This roasted broccoli is simple to make: Toss it and then throw it in the oven. It makes a great side dish when you’re short on time. And it goes really well with falafel salad.
