At our house, we love vegetables. Michael can eat an entire bag of spinach in one sitting!

How do you make Roasted Broccoli?

Preheat your oven to 375°F.  Chop up a head of broccoli into somewhat bite-sized pieces.  1 – 2 inch chunks are ideal.

Save the stem & leaves that you trim off for making bone broth!

Next, finely chop 3 – 4 cloves of garlic and dice half of a medium-sized onion. (The onion is optional but adds some more flavor!)

Toss all ingredients in a bowl with 3 – 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of black pepper. Optionally, you can also add a quarter of a teaspoon of red pepper flakes for a little added heat.

How Long Do You Cook Roasted Broccoli For?

Roast your broccoli for 10 – 15 minutes and then rotate your tray 180° to ensure even cooking. Bake for another 10 – 15 minutes until broccoli is fork-tender but not mushy. If you use onions, they should be translucent. *Cooking time may vary based on the size of your broccoli pieces and how well you spread them out on your cookie sheet. Extra cooking time will make the broccoli softer.

What is the Best Way to Reheat Leftover Roasted Broccoli?

You can reheat your broccoli in the microwave (it will lose some crunch this way) or reheat for 5-10 minutes in the oven at 300°F.

Cooking time may vary based on the size of your broccoli pieces and how well you spread them out on your cookie sheet. Extra cooking time will make the broccoli softer - we prefer to keep it crunchy. You can also add cauliflower or carrots to your bake to mix it up!
