If you’ve never Roasted Garlic you might not understand why this recipe for Roasted Broccoli with Garlic is so special, but trust me. This is not only one of the easiest broccoli recipes I’ve made, but also one of the tastiest broccoli dishes you can imagine.
Roasting sweetens the garlic and brings out the flavor of the broccoli in a most delightful way. Try it once and I’ll bet whenever you’re cooking something in the oven, tossing in some broccoli to roast is going to be your favorite way to cook broccoli. And this recipe couldn’t be healthier or more versatile; hope you will try it soon!
Cut up 1 large bunch of broccoli into bite-sized flowerets. (This is about 1 1/2 pounds of broccoli.)
The original recipe said 6-8 large cloves of garlic, but now I use about twice that much. Slice the garlic into thin slices.
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.
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.)
Roast at high heat until the broccoli is bright green and starting to brown slightly, about 20-25 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!
Roasted Broccoli with Garlic
(Makes about 4 servings, recipe adapted from The Food Network.)
1 bunch broccoli, about 1 1/2 pounds, cut into bite sized flowerets
3 T extra virgin olive oil
6-8 cloves fresh garlic (or more, I used about 12 cloves)
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450F/230C. Cut broccoli into bite sized pieces, and peel and slice stems if large. Slice garlic cloves, and cut slices in half if you want thinner pieces of garlic. (I don’t usually do that any more.)
Toss broccoli with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper, then spread on a baking sheet. Roast until broccoli is bright green and edges are starting to brown slightly, 20-25 minutes. Serve hot.
