Ingredients & Variations

BROCCOLI Roasted broccoli is a simple and delicious side dish that takes hardly any time to roast. This recipe would also be delicious with a cauliflower or a combination of the two!

For extra crunch try adding baby corn or sliced carrots or potatoes (par-cooked first). For extra flavor try roasted bell peppers, whole mushrooms, onions, or butternut squash pieces.

Can you roast frozen broccoli? You sure can! Frozen broccoli has already been washed and trimmed. Add olive oil and roast for 25-30 minutes.

SEASONINGS Keep it simple and toss the broccoli with garlic and olive oil before roasting.

The garlic cloves can be replaced with 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder or a teaspoon of garlic salt! If using garlic salt don’t forget to adjust the additional salt you add to this recipe.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Toss broccoli with remaining ingredients and ensure each piece is well coated with olive oil. Place on a baking pan.
  • Roast 10-12 minutes or until tender-crisp. Move to the top rack of the oven and broil 1 minute if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • Do not cut broccoli too small or it will overcook before it has a chance to crisp.
  • Frozen broccoli can be used as well. Since it's par-boiled before frozen it develops a caramelized color and smoky flavor when baked. 
  • Bake with other veggies including baby corn, par-boiled carrots or potatoes, bell peppers, whole mushrooms, onions or butternut squash.
