This is a super easy but tasty recipe that features both broccoli and onions, roasted in the oven with a bit of olive oil and some parmesan cheese. It’s a great side dish for meat, chicken, or fish.

You can substitute a sweet white or yellow onion for the red onion if you prefer.

  • 1 small red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1-2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
