Roasted Broccoli and Bacon

6 bacon slices, cut into small pieces
2 heads of broccoli, separated and cut into small florets
5 large cloves of garlic, minced

4-5 Tablespoons canola or other cooking oil
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Sea salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and place a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil in a rimmed baking tray.

Cut the broccoli into small florets and wash well.  Dry the broccoli florets by blotting the florets gently with paper towels.

Transfer the broccoli florets to a large zip lock bag and add the chopped bacon pieces, the avocado oil, balsamic vinegar, ground black pepper, sea salt and minced garlic cloves to the broccoli florets in the bag.

Seal the bag nicely and properly and toss the ingredients around in the bag to coat the broccoli and bacon pieces nicely with the seasonings and the oil.

Transfer the coated broccoli florets and bacon to the baking tray and roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the vegetables and the bacon pieces are browned from all sides.  Flip the contents of the baking tray every 10 minutes to ensure even browning.
