Yum Yum! I couldn't stop eating this! What a nice change from steamed broccoli. We eat broccoli all the time and I wanted a new way to prepare it-this is it! The garlic flavor is fabulous! I followed this recipe exactly, which I never do ! I did cook it longer, about 15 minutes. I took another reviewers suggestion and tossed the olive oil and spices in a plastic bag with the broccoli to coat -worked great! Just say "yes" to roasted broccoli! I have a similar recipe for asparagus, with the addition of shallots and it's great too! Thank you for this recipe-keeper!

Loved this broccoli! I used just a bit less oil, otherwise made as directed. The short roasting time at the high temp was great for this broccoli - it was cooked perfectly with just a few wonderful crunchy spots. Thanks for posting this recipe!

This is absolutely delicious! I had to roast mine about 20 minutes to get a bit tender. I will be making this very often, thanks!

Excellent recipe! I was a bit sceptical about the balsamic vinegar but much to my delight this has turned into my favorite garlic recipe - even beating out the one using soy sauce and the stir fry with pignolis. Very easy! In order to get the best coverage, I mixed the ingredients in a ziplock bag and then added the broccoli and it coated it beautifully. I also backed it along with my salmon at 350 for about 25 minutes and it came out perfect.

This was very good. My wife didn't like the balsamic vinegar but I thought it was great. However, I think it would be just as good without the vinegar.

Roasted broccoli is a definite favorite of ours, and I like that the balsamic doesn't overpower it - it gives it a nice subtle base flavor. I cut back on the oil and salt. Nine minutes was perfect for us. I added the garlic in the last 2 minutes, so it wouldn't burn. Served two for us.

The taste of the broccoli with the garlic oil was too good that I forgot to drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Next time I have to think of adding it. Thanks KPD :) Made for the Best of 2011 cookbook tag game

Great, simple recipe. I roasted the broccoli longer, for about 20 minutes and it was perfect. Thanks!

This was very good but not and overwhelming hit in our house. It was quick, easy and tasty but hubby wasn't a huge fan. (If it's not steamed and covered in cheese, it's just not the best broccoli he can imagine.) I enjoyed this (as much for its simplicity as its flavor) and will make it again for myself but I doubt hubby will be eating tons if this broccoli. Thanks for something new.

Oh wow this was so good! I love broccoli cooked almost anyway and this was definitely no exception. The balsamic at the end really added that extra something special. Will make again and again!
