Garlic-Roasted Broccoli Drizzled With Balsamic Vinegar

  1. How do you tweak this for frozen broccoli?


  1. 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!
  2. Great, simple recipe. I roasted the broccoli longer, for about 20 minutes and it was perfect. Thanks!
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
