We eat broccoli several times a week because my kids love it.  But we always do it the same way – boiled, and sometimes with melted cheese (sometimes plain).  I saw something on Pinterest about roasting more vegetables in 2014 on the same day my Mom posted a similar recipe on Facebook she saw online and thought, what the heck, I’ll try this with broccoli.  The result was DELISH.  I did it the same way I roast kale and it was as good, if not better.

Roasted Broccoli

Broccoli heads
Fresh ground pepper
Fresh ground sea salt
Fresh lemon juice, squeezed (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350.

Cut broccoli heads and put them on a foil lined baking sheet.

Cover them with olive oil.  Add fresh ground pepper and fresh ground sea salt, if you have it.  Lastly, squeeze a tiny bit of fresh lemon juice on them.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Crunchy and so flavorful!


  1. I put parmesan cheese before popping in the oven and they’re so good!

  2. LOVE roasted veggies — asparagus, sweet potatoes, green beans! Such an easy and delicious way to round out dinner. Thanks for sharing!

  3. What a wonderful way to cook broccoli which I never liked until I read your mother’s recipe!!! Would love to see more great ideas from her. Does she have anymore really easy gourmet recipes she would be willing to share!!!
