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 started roasting all my veggies and I’m hooked on this Oven-Roasted Broccoli recipe. I seriously may never eat broccoli any other way.
I tried this Grilled Broccoli from the Purple Pig in Chicago and I’ve been totally obsessed. It was tossed with an anchovy vinaigrette and roasted garlic… to die for! It’s honestly what kind of inspired me to start roasting my veggies cause I’m too lazy to walk to the cabanas and use the grill.
Some key things to know about this recipe is:
- Do NOT overcrowd the sheet pan.
- Keep an eye on it when it’s cooking. It can easily go from being roasted to BURNT.
- Be mindful of how much oil you add because if they are too dressed, it’ll be too soggy.
I eat them plain, but you can also add them to a salad as a fun and tasty topping, too.
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
- 3 tbsp Avocado oil
- 2 Tbsp of Everything Bagel Seasoning (Trader Joes is my fav!)
Directions To Make Delicious Broccoli
- Set oven to 425 degrees.
- 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.
- Once you have them trimmed to your liking, it’s time to add them to a medium-sized bowl and toss in avocado oil.
- Once you have them covered with oil, lay out flat on a baking sheet.
- Place the pan on the middle level of your oven rack.
- Leave for 8-10 minutes, depending on your “roasted” preference.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle seasoning on. Give it a toss and serve immediately.
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.
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!
