I love broccoli. I’ll eat it raw, steamed, or cooked just about any way possible…and I’ll eat every single bite. But recently, I’ve discovered this delicious Oven Roasted Broccoli recipe and I’m hooked. I seriously may never eat broccoli any other way.
The key to this recipe is getting them cooked to perfection with the broil setting in your oven. Simple enough to do, right? Honestly, it is.
While you may need to stay close while they’re cooking, you can rest easy knowing that once they are done to your liking, you’ll gobble up each and every bite.
I eat them plain, but you can also add them to a salad as a fun and tasty topping, too.
How to make Healthy Oven Roasted Broccoli
With just a few simple steps, you’ll be noshing on some delicious veggies that will give you great nutrients and energy to tackle the day.
Ingredients to make Oven Roasted Broccoli
- 1 head of raw broccoli (or a bag of already cut up ones)
- 3 tablespoons of avocado oil (or oil of your choice)
- 2 Tbsp of Everything Bagel Seasoning
Directions to make cooked broccoli
Always start off by washing and cleaning your broccoli. Give it a good shake to get rid of the excess water.
Next, start chopping off those stems. For this recipe, you’ll only need the tops so the stems can be eaten raw instead as you’re cooking. (have you ever eaten raw broccoli stems? They are so good!)
Once you have them trimmed to your liking, it’s time to add them to a medium sized bowl and toss in your avocado oil or oil of your choice.
Once you have them covered with oil, lay them on a baking sheet or on a flat pan to put under the broil.
Make certain that you have your own set to “low” broil and place the pan on the middle level of your oven rack.
Keep an eye on your broccoli at this point. You’ll start to notice that the longer you keep it under the broil, the more charred it is going to get. If you like your broccoli to taste a bit raw and have a crunch, you’ll want to keep a closer eye on it to ensure that you don’t overcook it. I always recommend checking every 5 minutes so that you don’t miss that window.
When you’re happy with the look and feel of it, pull the broccoli from the oven and sprinkle on your everything bagel seasoning. You can add a lot or a little…whatever your taste buds like!
And just like that, you’ve created a delicious and super simple broccoli recipe that your taste buds are going to crave over and over again.
One can never have too many ways to cook broccoli in their back pocket, right? Give your body the fuel it needs with this delicious oven roasted broccoli!
