Roasted Broccoli in a bowl

I make this easy roasted broccoli recipe at least twice a month, sometimes more. It’s so simple, it hardly qualifies as a recipe. But it’s so delicious that I couldn’t help but share.

How to Make Roasted Broccoli

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Place broccoli florets on baking sheet and spray with additional olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoning salt. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Yes, it’s that easy! And it’s delicious. If you’re watching your salt intake, leave out the seasoning salt and add thick slices of garlic (while roasting) or a squeeze lemon juice (after roasting) instead.

Still hungry? Here’s what else I ate this week:

Rotini with Caramelized Onions & Roasted Broccoli

Rotini with Caramelized Onions & Roasted Broccoli // …and this is what I did with the roasted broccoli. I tossed it with whole wheat rotini, caramelized (well, almost caramelized–I was impatient) onions, and jarred pasta sauce. It’s easy, it tastes homemade, and it’s healthier than overloading the pasta with cheese.

Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini with Parmesan Panko

Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini with Parmesan Panko // I’ve never met a stuffed zucchini recipe that I didn’t like, but my husband usually isn’t a fan. This is the only stuffed zucchini recipe that he really enjoys.

Wild Mushroom & Potato Pizza with Walnut Pesto

Wild Mushroom & Potato Pizza // This was our dinner on Saturday. We can’t get enough of this pizza!

Roasted Cauliflower with Cashew Raisin Vinaigrette

Roasted Cauliflower with Cashew Raisin Vinaigrette // I first made this in April, mostly just to use up raisins that had been sitting in the pantry for months. But we ended up really liking it. Raisin vinaigrette–who knew?!

      Are you jealous of the bowl or the broccoli? πŸ˜‰ It’s from Anthro! My birthday present from the husband last year. πŸ™‚ They are biiiiig bowls, so they’re perfect for pasta and veggies.

      We have either roasted cauliflower or broccoli every week and we have for years now and we NEVER get tired of it. It’s just so easy and good!

      Come on over! πŸ˜‰ I love roasting veggies too, to the point where I don’t want to make them any other way! I need to come up with some new ideas.

        Oh, I can relate with that. I, personally, think that you don’t need to change a thing. If you find perfection….which I happen to think roasted veggies are…..why change it?!

            We are like that too here. When we stumble upon something we like, we make it often until the next thing grabs our attention. πŸ™‚

    I do the same with my broccoli! Sometimes I’ll throw in shrimp for the latter half of the roasting, after seeing that in a food column a few years ago. Quick dinner. Boy, your dinners look good. πŸ™‚

      Yeah, after I started roasting broccoli, I never wanted to make it steamed anymore–it’s so good that way! πŸ™‚

    Wow all of those recipes look incredible. I love roasting broccoli! We eat A LOT of it over here and am I am always looking for new ways to make it. My favorite has to be roasting it with thick slices of garlic. The pesto on my blog comes in a pretty close second though πŸ™‚

    I never would have thought of potatoes and mushrooms on pizza but it sounds so intriguing and delicious!

      I need to try that pesto! I’ve heard of all different kinds of pesto, but never broccoli. πŸ™‚ And I love broccoli!

      I know the pizza sounds weird, but it’s so good, I promise! I never would have thought to put potatoes on pizza until we had it at a restaurant and I totally fell in love with it, excessive carbs and all.

    I know that I am always going to be jealous when I click on your posts. We moved this week and are in limbo at extended stay so our food is boring and way to unhealthy. Yuck. I hate how I feel at the end of the week of eating unhealthy!

      I hope your move went well! I think the entire month before and after we moved to NC, we were eating take out. And then it spiraled into having frozen yogurt for dinner and Krispy Kreme for lunch. I felt AWFUL after that, so I totally feel your pain!

    Love roasted broccoli. I have found salt free seasoning and it is just like seasoning salt. I found it at Atwoods which is a farm supply, western clothing, etc. store.

      I’ll have to look for that–I wonder if they sell it at supermarkets? I’m supposed to eat more salt because I have low blood pressure, but I like to limit it when I’m cooking for my husband’s sake and then add extra to my portion.

    I have never thought of RAISINS in salad dressing…which is odd because I use dates all.the.time as a sweetener!!! Great idea. Thanks so much. I will be trying this one out soon (:

      Me neither! But somehow it works. I hate dates, but I just discovered how good they are for sweetening things. πŸ™‚
