Super tender with slightly charred tips, this oven roasted broccoli is healthy, easy to make and goes with just about anything! Once you try, you’ll be hooked.
Easy side. Only four ingredients. Goes with just about anything. I mean it really doesn’t get easier than that! I was not always a broccoli fan until I tried oven roasted broccoli. It’s totally different than traditional steamed broccoli. Super tender with perfectly crunchy ends.
All you need is fresh broccoli florets, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Layer the broccoli onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Then you want to roast the broccoli for about 20 minutes. I used two baking sheets and placed one in the middle and the second in the lower third of the oven. After 20 minutes the broccoli will be lightly charred at the tips. You want to give it a good toss and continue roasting for another 15-18 minutes or until fork tender.
I literally ate a whole tray of it the other night on its own but you can serve it alongside any of your favorites entrées. I think it would be delicious with steak.
