Recipe Tips

  • Wash and dry the fresh broccoli, wet broccoli will steam.
  • Make sure they are cut into uniform bite-size pieces, so they cook evenly to an even layer.
  • Don't overcrowd the cookie sheet make sure you spread the broccoli out.
  • Use freshly grated parmesan cheese, not the stuff in the green can.

Tips for roasting vegetables

  • Make sure all the vegetables are cut to the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Don't overcrowd the baking sheet.
  • Serve immediately roasted vegetables are best served right away.
  • Use the right amount of olive oil. Too much oil will make your vegetables soggy.

Recipe Faq's

Does broccoli need to be blanched before roasting?

You don't need to add that extra step, roasting the broccoli at a high heat allows it to cook quickly and get crispy on the outside and tender on the inside with some delicious crispy bits.

How to chop broccoli

If you choose to buy broccoli stalks instead of the bag. Choose stalks that are bright green and firm. Rinse broccoli and dry it well with a paper towel. Cut off the large bulky stalk at the base of the head and discard. Then carefully using a knife cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces, some of the larger pieces you may have to cut in half.

Can I use frozen broccoli?

I recommend using fresh broccoli for this recipe. Frozen broccoli has too much moisture in it and won't get those crispy edges that everybody loves.

Storing and reheating roasted broccoli

This oven roasted broccoli side dish is best served fresh. You can store leftovers in an airtight container then chop them up and add them to some Broccoli Cheese Soup or mix them into Garlic Fettuccini Alfredo.
