Oven Roasted Broccoli with walnuts is a quick and healthy side dish that everyone will love. It’s crunchy, nutty and takes less than 20 minutes to make!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone ask, can you oven roast broccoli? The short answer is yes, but there are a few things to keep in mind when making our side dish.

Oven temperature, cooking time, and choosing the right oil are the key factors to a great oven roasted broccoli recipe.

There are so many vegetables that taste great after they’ve been roasted. We keep fresh veggies on rotation, and prepare roasted vegetables several times a week.

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

She only let them cook for 10 to 15 minutes, any longer and the walnuts would burn.

How to Make Oven Roasted Broccoli:

Start by preheating your oven to 425°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.

Tips:

  • 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.
