This Parmesan garlic roasted broccoli with almonds is the best broccoli recipe ever! Broccoli is tossed with garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, sprinkled with Parmesan and sliced almonds and oven roasted to perfection – amazing!
This epic broccoli recipe takes a simple roasted broccoli a step further by adding Parmesan cheese, balsamic drizzle and roasted almonds! Even broccoli haters love this caramelized roasted broccoli, it tastes amazing!
The broccoli florets in this recipe are sliced lengthwise, so they are thin and lay flat on a baking sheet. When sliced this way, not only does the broccoli look more impressive, but it also cooks quicker and the flat shape allows more Parmesan and almonds to stick to the broccoli!
If you don’t feel like doing the extra work of slicing the broccoli, feel free to leave it in regular broccoli florets and add another 5 minutes to the baking time. No matter which way you slice this broccoli, it tastes amazing in a caramelized Parmesan garlic form!
This is a perfect clean eating recipe, broccoli is so good for you and this is the easiest way to incorporate more broccoli into your diet! When broccoli tastes so yummy, it’s so easy to eat the whole head of broccoli at once!
Making Parmesan roasted broccoli is really easy. First make a balsamic dressing in a cup by mixing extra-virgin olive oil, minced fresh garlic and balsamic vinegar. Then toss the sliced broccoli florets with the dressing and put on a baking sheet. Roast in a 425F oven for 7 minutes, then take out of the oven and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese and almonds. Put the broccoli back in the oven and roast for another 7 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Delicious!
