This oven roasted broccoli recipe is easy and versatile. The crisp, golden brown florets are delicious as a side dish or in all sorts of broccoli recipes!
Making perfect roasted broccoli couldn’t be easier! Here’s what you need to do:
- First, preheat the oven to 400 and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- While the oven warms up, break a head of broccoli into evenly sized florets. Spread them on the baking sheet in a single layer.
- Toss the broccoli florets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer them to the hot oven and bake for 15 to 22 minutes, until the florets are browned and crisp around the edges.
That’s it! You can also roast Meyer lemon halves along with the broccoli. Right when they come out of the oven, squeeze the roasted lemon juice over the florets. Then, finish them with a big sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Serve warm, and enjoy!
- Wash AND dry your veggies.After you wash your head of broccoli, make sure to dry it off before you toss it with the oil. A little moisture is ok, but if it’s too wet when it goes in the oven, it won’t get brown and crisp.
- 不要怕盐。No one loves bland broccoli, so salt yours generously. I sprinkle mine with sea salt before roasting and then add more, to taste, after it comes out of the oven.
- Cut your florets to a similar size.Similar-sized pieces will cook at a similar rate, so make sure your florets are all about the same size. You don’t want little ones to burn before larger ones become tender!
- Don’t let things get too crowded!如果小花靠得太近在烤盘上，他们将在烤炉蒸汽，并且他们不会得到棕色和明快。确保每一个之间的一个小空间传播你的小花在偶数层。
- 不折腾秸秆！Chop it and roast it right along with the florets, save it to make汤或脉冲成花椰菜大米。浪费不可！
