Oven Roasted Broccoli

Oven Roasted Broccoli is a quick, easy and super healthy dish for your entire family.

I returned home from Blogher Food 2010 yesterday and found that the seasons had changed during the mere 4 days I was out of town.  It now seems to actually be fall here in Boulder, which means it is the perfect weather for roasting vegetables.

My boys inhale this naturally gluten free roasted broccoli dish whenever I make it.  Their friend Josh has been known to eat the entire tray of broccoli just minutes before dinner, leaving me with only one green veggie dish to serve instead of two (I usually also make kale chips when I serve this as green veggies are a main part of what we eat every night here).

This quick and easy roasted broccoli is also delicious dipped in my Tangy Peanut Sauce.

On a final note, I don’t know if any of you remember the Gluten Free Rosemary Cracker recipe I created for the Almond Board of California during my satellite media tour back in June. Well, I recently received the video they took of me making these scrumptious little gluten free crackers. I would love to share it with you below!

  1. okay, i’m going to cave and get broccoli. i think the kids might eat it. but i know the husband won’t. i’ve been going back and forth on the cruciferous veggies, as i crave them, but often get indigestion from them.

  2. This is one of our favorite sides too. I slice up garlic to toss with the broccoli then squeeze lemon juice when it comes out of the oven.

  3. Agh, broccoli is actually a weakness for me! I crave it almost daily. I can eat a whole lb of broccoli or cauliflower if roasted … I mean, it shrinks up so much you know :)

    So incredible to meet you at BlogHer at long last!

  4. Hi Elena,

    Just curious, with fall upon us, whether you have any almond/coconut flour based recipes for pumpkin cookies or pumpkin bread that you’d be willing to share. Thanks!

  5. Hey! I just ate oven roasted broc as part of my lunch! So funny. I add lemon juice to mine, I think it gives it a cheesy flavor (that’s probably just me though!). And now I am baking your Savory Vegetable Quiche for my husbands dinner! You are adorable in this video and I love the colors, your green top and the yellows in the kitchen are very pretty. And I bet the crackers are delectable :)
