Roasted Broccoli

Roasted broccoli

This recipe comes to us from cooking instructor April Hamilton who writes, “Jump start this by putting a rimmed baking sheet in the oven while it preheats.  When you put the broccoli on the hot pan, it immediately starts cooking.  15 minutes, hands-off, in the oven.  Yum!”  To read more about or by April, visit April’s Kitchen Counter.


Makes 4 servings

  • 1 head fresh broccoli, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat a rimmed baking sheet in the oven as you preheat it to 425.
  2. Toss the broccoli florets (and sliced stems, if you like) with the olive oil in a large bowl.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again.
  4. Remove the hot baking sheet from the oven and carefully place a sheet of parchment on it, then pour out the broccoli into an even layer.
  5. Roast the broccoli for 15 minutes, or until your desired degree of doneness. Ideally, the broccoli will be just tender with some crusty browned edges.
  6. Serve!
