Description

Make broccoli taste delish with this simple roasted broccoli recipe. It’s quick, easy and packed with nutrients and flavor.


Ingredients

  • 1 large crown or 2 small crowns of broccoli, washed and trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped garlic (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Prep broccoli: Cut the broccoli florets from the thick stalks, leaving an inch or two of stalk attached to the florets. Save the stalks for another use. See ideas here.
  3. Add oil: Coat broccoli florets with the oil in a large bowl or right on the baking sheet. You can use your hands to make sure the broccoli is well coated.
  4. Adding seasonings: Sprinkle on the salt, pepper, garlic and cayenne pepper (if using) and toss to coat.
  5. Roast: Put the broccoli on a rimmed baking sheet and place in the oven for about 25-30 minutes or until broccoli is cooked and the tops of the broccoli are a little brown.
  6. Serve: Serve immediately.
  7. Store: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. I don’t recommend freezing roasted broccoli.
