As you will see in the photos, we chose a high-quality olive oil for our roasted broccoli. Additionally, Kim cooked them at 425 degrees F., the perfect roasting temp.

She only let them cook for 8 to 10 minutes, any longer and the walnuts would burn.

How to Make Oven Roasted Broccoli:

Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees F. Next, wash, dry, and cut your broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

Then, in a mixing bowl, combine the broccoli, oil, and walnuts. Toss everything together.

All of the oven roasted broccoli ingredients combined in a glass bowl for mixing.

Now, spread the mixture evenly on a sheet pan.

Last, put the pan in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the florets begin to brown. Don’t overcook the dish!

Serve while hot and add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Be sure to dry the broccoli completely or it will steam, not roast.
  • If the dish cooks too long, the walnuts will burn.
  • Consider adding red pepper flakes for a little kick of spice.
  • Grated parmesan as a topping adds another layer of flavor to our oven roasted broccoli.
