Steps for Making Roasted Broccoli with Garlic:

(This is just a description of the steps in the photo; see the complete printable recipe below.)

  1. Cut up  broccoli into bite-sized flowerets.
  2. Prepare garlic cloves, trimming off any brown ends and cutting the larger cloves into halves or even thirds. (Use more or less garlic to taste.)
  3. Toss together the broccoli pieces, sliced garlic cloves, olive oil, salt and pepper and stir around until the broccoli pieces are well-coated with the oil.
  4. Arrange garlic on a cookie sheet so the pieces are in a single layer as much as possible. (If the broccoli is too crowded the pieces will steam instead of roasting.)
  5. Roast about 20 minutes, or until broccoli is bright green and starting to brown and garlic is barely getting browned on the edges

  1. Simple, delicious and healthy. I make it often, I love broccoli 🙂 Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  2. Very good. Good simple healthy dish with common ingredients.

  3. I’ve been going gluten free these days and am always on the search for some awesome recipe to try out. Thanks so much for the inspiration and lots of delicious things!

  4. Do you rinse and dry the broccolli first

    • I prefer not to, unless you really think it needs it. If the broccoli does have to be rinsed, get it as dry as you can before roasting.

  6. Thank you!!! I’ve literally never had broccoli I like (my parents are of the generation which thinks boiling veggies is the right thing to do). This broccoli tastes so so good and I’m so glad I finally tried it! My pan was way too big though so the garlic ended up crisping up like little garlic chips. it’s ok for be because I weirdly enjoy burnt garlic but others might be warned that a giant pan could result in an undesirable garlic situation.

  7. Silly question, for convenience I only use jarred pre minced garlic. Should I adjust the cooking for that at all or do I need to use real sliced garlic? I’m thinking I might try the trick the person from Spain commented with. 😀

    • I do use the minced garlic in a jar for some recipes too. But for this recipe I worry the garlic will burn in such small pieces. I can’t say for sure since I haven’t made it that way, but I don’t think I would recommend it.

  8. This looks delicious! Can't wait to try it. Just wanted to make a suggestion, your site doesn't display well when you try print it. Any chance you could add the recipe in one of the printer friendly plug ins? If you're not sure what I'm talking about, it's those boxes you see on different food blogs and sites. The recipe is in the box, then when a user goes to print it, it just prints that box.

    • Rachel, I am not on WordPress so I can't use a plug-in like you're referring to. But if you click the printer-friendly link after the actual recipe, that should print perfectly. I print my own recipes all the time and never have problems.
