* The Roasted Garlic oil adds another layer of garlicky flavor to this easy dish. The high temperature cooking oil is great for roasting these and other vegetables. Feel free to use another high-quality oil that can withstand the oven temperature. You may want to add some garlic cloves to the broccoli when roasting to ensure a nice flavor.
