This oven roasted broccoli comes together with only four simple ingredients! Roasted broccoli is the best.


  • 2 lbs. fresh broccoli florets (3 lbs. with stems)
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • Optional add-ins: bacon, Parmesan, garlic, lemon, your favorite spice blend


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Layer broccoli in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, season with salt, pepper, to taste, and toss to combine.
  3. Roast for 20 minutes. Toss the broccoli around and continue roasting for another 15-18 minutes or until fork tender. Broccoli should be tender and charred around the tips and stems. Serve immediately.


  • Pro tip: when roasting broccoli, make sure the pan you’re using is big enough to fit broccoli in a single layer with some room around. Otherwise, the broccoli will steam out instead of roast. Use several sheet pans if needed.
