Easy Roasted Broccoli

Roasted broccoli is easy to make and so much more flavorsome than boiled. My favorite part is the roasted sliced stem pieces.

How to Roast Broccoli

You’ll find a detailed ingredient list and step-by-step instructions in the recipe below, but let’s go over the basics:

Recipe for Roasted Broccoli

What to anticipate while roasting broccoli at home is summarized here:

  • Slice the flowers off of the stem.
  • Slice the stalk after peeling it.
  • Transfer the florets and stem pieces to a baking sheet after tossing them with oil.
  • Roast in the preheated oven after seasoning with salt and pepper.

Broccoli tastes so much better roasted than boiled, and it’s quite simple to prepare. The chunks of roasted, cut stem are my favorite part.

Can You Roast Frozen Broccoli?

While this recipe works best with fresh florets, you can technically make it with frozen broccoli. Don’t thaw the broccoli at all before roasting, just stick it in the oven straight from the freezer.


  • Fourteen ounces of broccoli
  • One tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste


Step 1:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Add salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Step 2:

Remove the broccoli florets from their stems. After peeling, cut the stalk into 1/4-inch pieces. Place the stem pieces and florets in a bowl with olive oil, then move to a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3:

Bake the broccoli for 18 to 20 minutes, or until it’s soft and has a light brown color, in a preheated oven.

Ready to serve!
