Make roasted broccoli for an easy weeknight side dish. Add lemon or garlic or Parmesan for added flavor, or with carrots and cauliflower for variety!


  • 23 large heads of broccoli
  • 12 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • additional seasoning as desired


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Wash and dry the broccoli. Cut the heads into florets, keeping as much stem as possible attached.
  3. Spread the broccoli into a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle evenly with olive oil.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and additional spices as desired.
  6. Roast in the oven until the broccoli florets start to char, about 15-20 minutes.*


* Roasted broccoli goes from lovely char to flat out burned pretty quick. I recommend setting the oven timer to 15 minutes, and then adding additional cooking time in 2-3 minute increments if needed. Don’t leave the kitchen on the additional cooking time though!
