Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli
Broccoli is another vegetable I love to roast. It caramelizes really well and leaves it really sweet. If you’d like to add more flavor, you can zest a lemon over the top before roasting, or sprinkle good Parmesan cheese over the top when it comes out of the oven.

  • 1-1 1/2 lbs broccoli florets, washed, dried & cut in 1" pieces
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Place the broccoli in a mixing bowl and add a few tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss until all the broccoli florets are generously coated with the oil. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until the broccoli is just soft, about  15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to ensure even cooking. 

Note: For a little added heat, sprinkle ½ teaspoon of chile flakes in before roasting.
