  • 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


  • Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Adding seasonings: Sprinkle on the salt, pepper, garlic and cayenne pepper (if using) and toss to coat.
  • 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.
  • Serve: Serve immediately.
  • Store: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. I don't recommend freezing roasted broccoli.
