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.
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.
Side dish recipes like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and salads are great options to have on-hand. Kim and I invite you to try our oven roasted broccoli and see for yourself that healthy can be delicious!
