Oven Roasted Broccoli

by Laura

I have heard of oven roasted broccoli but have never given it a try.  I finally got around to making a recipe from Aggie’s Kitchen.  I changed the recipe below slightly from the original to the way I liked it.  It is simple, easy, tasty, and a yummy change from steamed broccoli.

Oven Roasted Broccoli

  • 1 head broccoli, cut in florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt or kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  1. Toss broccoli florets with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  2. Roast in 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until slightly crisped and browned.

I am 50yrs old and I still don’t like broccoli in the general sense! I know it is one of the best things for you to eat and to tell the truth this is one of the best ways to eat it. Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

I thought I commented on this already, but guess not! So happy you loved the broccoli, once I started roasting it I never cooked it another way again (unless in a stirfry!). My kids love it! I can’t wait to try the other ideas with the panko and the ginger. And I love to add red pepper flakes to mine (when I’m not sharing with the kids!)

Looks tasty! I tend to fall into ruts with veggies, especially when Alex and Soph like the veggies one way for sure. This is really a tasty sounding alternative to my standard steamed broccoli.
Thanks!

Veronica, what looks like red pepper flakes is instead, I think, browned garlic.
Instead of garlic, I often use grated ginger. Goes very well with the broccoli.

It looks like you put red pepper flakes on your broccoli but I don’t see it in the ingredients. Do you suggest using it?

Roasted broccoli is the best. I make this all the time except I add 1/3 c toasted panko before baking, and toss in 1/4 c cheddar or parmesean cheese durring the last 3 minutes of baking. Just long enough so the cheese can melt.
I think people who hate broccoli only hate it because they’ve never had it roasted!!!
