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. My kiddos LOVE roasted broccoli! My one question that I ask myself everytime I make it – should I be using olive oil with the high heat? Any thoughts on that?

  2. Yes! I have been rockin’ a roasted broccoli and sweet potato salad for quite sometime now. Hands down my favorite way to eat broccoli- not that it takes me too much convincing to eat it!!

  3. Does anyone have experience with roasting frozen broccoli? Broccoli is one of those veggies I like to buy frozen and have on reserve in case I don’t have fresh produce around. But I wonder if it is possible to roast it without defrosting it first? Maybe on convection? I’m willing to experiment but if anyone has any tips that could save me some failed experiments!

  4. We love this dish too! I think it is important to note (for the newbies) that the broccoli needs to be dried thourouly after washing otherwise it is soggy. I use my salad spinner :) Thanks for your recipes & tips, I follow you closely & appreciate your dedication!

  5. I’m having an abundance of brocolli and I’m excited to see yet another way to enjoy it simply and healthfully! Many thanks and love the video for the almond crackers! Tracy

  6. Totally off-subject, but I was wondering if you read the China Study, and what your opinion of it is. The book seems to think that eating vegan would cure most ills. So much conflicting information out there, but I know that you studied how to eat to help yourself, so I was thinking of you as I was reading this book.

  7. ooo yum – I make roasted broccoli all the time. Toss it through some baby spinach leaves with roasted beetroot, soft fetta and dress as I feel. Delish!
