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. Michelle, so glad the recipes are helpful for you! And you can do it!

  2. I just started SB Diet and I found your blog, I love the healthy ingredients and SPICES in all of your recipes. I am a total foody, so dieting is hard for me, but I am determined to lose 40 pounds and feel better. I have enjoyed this site so much and the few recipes I have tried so far I absolutely LOVE!! I am going to do Alice Springs Chicken Casserole, with the cauliflower alfredo and roasted broccoli with garlic tonight. I truly don't feel like I am missing much on this diet!! Well, except the glass of vino with dinner but that will come in later phases. Thank you again~ Michelle

  3. I wouldn't say this would reheat particularly well. It would be okay reheated, but it would never have the slightly-crisp texture that makes it so good right out of the oven.

  4. Would this dish reheat well?

  5. Hi Sara, fun hearing how it's done in Spain!

  6. I'm from Spain, country in which no missing recipe garlic. This roast you've done is very Spanish.To preserve garlic peeled, nothing better than to put it in glass bottles filled with olive oil and put them in the fridge. Although we, Spaniards have it with your skin out and peel them and chop (or not) when are we going to cook.

  7. This is one of my most favorite ways to eat broccoli as well – sooooo good!

  8. I love broccoli pretty much any way, but there isn't much that would not be better with a little {or a lot} of roasted garlic

  9. Missy, that's fun to hear!

  10. I have made this roasted broccoli with garlic now for the past 3 nights. My whole family just loves it, even my 2 year old granddaughter.

  11. My hubby LOVES it when I make this, so don't tell him but tonight I really made it so I could eat the roasted garlic cloves(I only double or triple the amount called for)! Such a great recipe!

  12. Daisygirl, thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.

  13. I'm always looking for different ways to cook my veggies and this recipe was very easy to make and VERY tasty. Thanks for sharing! I have added you to my favorites and can't wait to try other recipes.. they all look wonderful.

  14. Good to know that you can get a good result with frozen broccoli. I admit I'm surprised to hear that. I buy those pre-peeled garlic cloves and freeze them too, so handy! Glad you've been enjoying this dish.

  15. Hi Kalyn,

    My husband & son both love the roasted broccoli w/garlic recipe. They ask for it by name and have raved about it to others! Thanks for making me look good! ;-*

    As far as using frozen broccoli, though, I always use it for this dish. I buy the frozen organic broccoli from Costco. It does require a little more roasting time, but the last few minutes are done on the top rack of the oven to achieve the same effect.

    I also prepare this in a cast iron skillet w/the frozen broccoli on top of the stove. The cast iron does a great job of delivering on the roasted flavor & texture when I start w/high heat then reduce til I'm satisfied w/the results. Sometimes I throw in thinly sliced onion, too. And tons of extra garlic!

    We have no vampire worries here! LOL

    PS – I also buy the big bag of peeled whole garlic and just stick it right in the freezer. It freezes well & does not affect the outcome of any dish I've used it in.

  16. Brianne, glad you liked it. Good idea to add some carrots.

  17. I just made this and added carrots as well. A great simple side dish thank you

  18. Anonymous, I'm not sure what happened because I went back and checked my notes which say 20-25 minutes and also checked the original recipe at the Food Network which says 20 minutes. You might want to check your oven temperature.

    The recipe says "Roast until broccoli is bright green and edges are starting to brown slightly" so I'm sorry you didn't check it at least once during the cooking time.

  19. Followed this recipe and found that 20-25 minutes in a 450 oven carbonizes everything to black charcoal. Next time I will try 8-10 minutes.
