This Easy Roasted Broccoli Recipe is perfect as a simple side dish or use to enhance other dishes.  Baking in a hot oven yields tender-crisp broccoli all in under 30 minutes.


  • 1 large head of broccoli (about 45 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F.
  2. Trim off the end of the stem and peel the broccoli stem if needed.  (If broccoli is freshly picked, it will probably not need peeling). Cut into bite-sized pieces.  This size allows the broccoli to get a good sear without overcooking.  Cut the stem into 2-inch lengths about 1/2 inch thick. Place cut broccoli in a bowl.  Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper into the broccoli, lightly massaging in with your hands.
  3. Arrange broccoli in a single layer, on a sheet pan covered with parchment (optional, but makes for easy clean up).
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes.  The broccoli with continue to cook on the sheet pan, when you bring it out of the oven.  Move immediately to a serving dish to keep it tender crisp.
  5. Serve warm as it or with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.  Check out additional serving suggestions in the notes.


If you prefer your broccoli cooked softer then al dente, set the oven at 425F and bake for 20-25 min.
