This simple recipe is my favorite way to eat broccoli, roasted as-is with a hint of garlic, or dipped in creamy sauce, or mixed into Buddha Bowls.

Roasting broccoli florets on a baking sheet brings out their natural sweetness, tenderizes them, and gives them crispy edges.

With just a quick toss in olive oil and a little garlic powder, salt and pepper, you get the very best flavor from the broccoli and a touch of zest.

The key to Perfect Roasted Broccoli is to not use too much or too little oil.

If you don’t use enough oil, the broccoli will steam more than roast, leaving the broccoli with flimsy edges. If you use too much oil, the broccoli will be greasy and limp.

Use just enough oil to fully coat the broccoli florets, without any dripping, or pooling on the baking sheet.

Perfect Roasted Broccoli is so easy to make. Anyone can do it.

Just crank the oven up, watch the amount of oil you use, and don’t over season the broccoli.

It will stay green and earthy, with just enough crunch to make your kids (or picky adults) take notice!

    Can these roast at 400 for longer? Thinking of roasting multiple things along with the broccoli and they all call for 400 F.

      Hi Madeline,

      Honestly, they’d be better off not roasting in a full oven, but you can give it a try. Roasting them at 400, for longer, is less of an issue than a loaded down oven. Let me know how they turn out!

    OMG my family fell I need love!!!!  I made this just because I was tired of the same old same old.  My family likes broccoli but they loved it so much that my daughter in law asked for the recipe so my son and grand kids would eat it. They won’t eat it any other way. That’s awesome. To get kids to eat veggies is big in my book so bring it on with the roasted broccoli!!!!  Thank you!

    Try this with BBQ spice and Fry-Light oil spray instead of olive oil – it’s a low-fat alternative, and still tastes GREAT! I have roasted broc like this every day – never gets old!

    My family actually waits  in anticipation for me to make this when I get broccoli.  It’s the only way I prepare it anymore.  I tried garlic bread spread, and it worked pretty well!  Thank you so much!

    Hi can you make this with frozen broccoli?

      Hi Christy,

      You can make it with frozen broccoli, but the texture turns out better if you start with fresh.
