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 slices if the pieces are big. 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 about 20 minutes, or until broccoli is bright green and starting to brown and garlic is barely getting browned on the edges.
