This recipe is really delicious and couldn't be simpler to make, and only takes a few minutes to cook. The broccoli comes out crisp-tender; the broccoli has a slightly crisp exterior from cooking it at such high heat. This recipe is from Food and Wine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Arrange the broccoli florets in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Toss florets with olive oil and salt.
  4. Roast just until cooked through and slightly brown and crispy at the edges, just a few minutes.
  5. Remove the broccoli to a bowl.
  6. Toss with balsamic vinegar to taste.
  7. Serve immediately.

Fabulous broccoli! I cut my broccoli into spears (not florets) and after about 5-7 min. they were done perfectly. They were still crispy and had that roasted flavor. I found I liked it best without the balsamic.

I never had roasted broccoli before this recipe and I would give it 5 stars based just on the roasted broccoli alone because that was really good. I also like that the recipe is more of a concept than an actual recipe which allows you to make as much as you need and follow your instincts. The balsamic added a nice sweet tang to the broccoli and the whole recipe was really simple. So, there wasn't anything not to like :) Made for vegetarian/vegan swap.

Outstanding! So much better than the regular steam/garlic/butter preparation. I cannot wait to have it again! Thank you.
