Roasted broccoli is my favorite way of cooking broccoli. Roasting the broccoli brings out the best flavor in this vegetable. Even broccoli haters often gobble up roasted broccoli.
There are 3 things that make roasted broccoli so flavorful:
1) Roasting itself
2) Extra-virgin olive oil
Ingredients For Roasted Broccoli Recipe:
1 head of broccoli
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Directions How To Make Roasted Broccoli:
Preheat oven to 425F. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut broccoli into florets. Put broccoli florets in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Mix everything with your hands so the broccoli is coated with oil.
Put the broccoli on a baking sheet. Put it in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
