There are 3 simple steps to roasting any vegetable.
How to Roast Vegetables
- Wash and cut veggies.
- Coat with olive oil.
- Mix and work into an even layer on the sheet tray without crowding the vegetables.
- Roast in the oven until just tender and browned.
I keep the seasoning for this oven roasted broccoli pretty simple, just salt and pepper and some garlic powder.
You can add lemon zest or parmesan, or both. I usually keep it simple though because I forget to make a vegetable until dinner is almost done 90% of the time. Ha!
There are only two tricks to know when roasting vegetables – get all the vegetables into an even layer…
…and don’t crowd the pan! Crowding the pan will result in moisture, which won’t let the broccoli roast properly.
That’s it! An easy recipe that really is the best broccoli recipe! Tell me, what is your FAVORITE vegetable to roast?? I have a fantastic oven roasted carrots recipe and a delicious crispy oven roasted potato recipe!
