Roasted Broccoli with Smashed Garlic

Here’s a great way to make broccoli if you are tired of making it the same old way. Roasting broccoli with garlic creates a sweet, nutty delicious flavor and the aroma that wafts through your kitchen will make everyone asking when’s dinner ready. This is a simple, yet elegant side dish. I like it topped with shaved Parmesan but you can also add red pepper flakes or top it with fresh lemon juice.

So easy and quick! I had to double it because the original served 4 and I was making it for 7, so I was a little worried that the cooking time would be off, but 20 minutes later I had beautifully roasted broccoli…and the flavor was fantastic. This will be my go-to broccoli recipe for sure!

I made this recipe yesterday for Christmas! It is now my favorite way to have broccoli, and I never knew broccoli could be this good. Roasting it brought out such a good flavor. When I made it, I upped the garlic a bit and also threw in some diced onions. I also spread the baking dish with a little bacon grease for a little of that flavor since I cooked some bacon earlier that day. Very good decisions all around! Didn’t even get to the Parmesan cheese, it was so good I forgot about it.

LOVE this!! I've made it quite a few times and its my most favorite way to eat broccoli!!! I often wonder if I could use thawed frozen broccoli florets,them i have always in the freezer!! One day I will be brave

I usually don't like cooked vegetables, but my husband loves them, so I tried this and I LOVE it! Thank you for opening up a new world! I had to put cheese over it to convince him to eat it, but it worked and he devoured it ??

Roasted Broccoli…. mmm! This is definitely a new favorite. We eat lots of broccoli and it's nice to have a new way to prepare it besides steaming. Thank you for sharing. All your recipes inspire me to spend more time in the kitchen.

OMG! I found this website yesterday and fell in love. I made this recipe today, along w/others and it was amazing. I love broccoli and have never tried them roasted or with garlic, wow!!! I had to make myself stop eating. I cut the florets stem short (thats the way I like them) and used minced garlic instead and it was still amazing. A+! Thanks Gina-Tameka

This was fantastic. Which is something I rarely (if ever) say about vegetables. We eat veggies in our household but we're not veggie lovers.

But as soon as it came out of the oven we all agreed that it smelled amazing and tasted even better. We ate the whole dish. I'm already planning on putting it into regular rotation and experimenting with other veggies cooked this way.

I want to roast several veggies tonight: Broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, green beans and maybe carrots. Can I put them in at the same time or do I need to put them in at different times for the smaller veggies? Is 450 degrees good for all of them? How long for them?

this is absolutely delcisious! made it twice in the past two days (i cant make more than one serving at a time or i'll eat it all!) im a vegetarian and i have found SO many wondeful recipes on your site! thanks ??

Took twice the time for the broccoli to tender up and the garlic to change color even slightly. But this is the way I make most of my veggies now – squash, asparagus, brussel sprouts, etc. so I knew it would be worth the wait!

This is in my oven right now. I'm mixing it with a pasta dish that I made last night (WW Pasta, goat cheese, broccoli, garlic) to augment what's left and get more vegetables. My apartment smells like roasting garlic and I love it!

I just found this site a couple of days ago, everything on here looks so good, I made a list of things I wanted to try. I started with this recipe because I had some fresh broccoli that I bought for the first time and wanted to use it before it went bad. OMG, I'll never buy frozen again! This was so good, and found myself eating it as a snack! Can't wait to try more of your recipes. Thanks so much!

MMMMM!!!! I just made this as my after work snack, and it was great. I used minced garlic, because that is what I had on hand. Gina, you were right…it did burn. But, it was still very yummy! Thanks for the great recipe!

This is the only way I've been making my broccoli for years. Love roasted cauliflower as you mentioned and we even throw in some carrots as well.We also 'roast' veggies on the grill. I use a disposable pan.

I never really loved broccoli because it just lacked flavor and I didn't want to add butter or cheese to it. However, since the first time I tried this recipe, I can't imagine making broccoli any other way. It's genius! I make it as a side at least once a week now.

Made this tonight, along with the Asian Glazed drumsticks.. this was the best broccoli I've ever made. My Fiance hates broccoli, but said it was great, and went back for seconds and thirds. Why did I never think of putting broccoli in the oven??!

OMG!!! Just had the best dinner! Made this broccoli, added a little red pepper strips and roasted. Mixed with a small amount of farfalle pasta (Barilla plus) and some cubed ham. It was excellent!!! I know I added some points with the pasta and ham, but I wanted to turn this into a complete meal. I will make it again, next time with shrimp!!!! My husband loved it and so did I!!!!!Love all of your recipes!!!

OK! I like it! Different things I did were the spray butter instead of olive oil, minced garlic instead of smashed, and about 30 minutes instead of 20 (because I thought it wasn't brown enough)…. Next time I will follow the recipe and use olive oil to see how its different. I suppose that at least this way, there are fewer points/calories ?? Here's to future adventures into my attempt at cooking….

I never learned to cook (I'm 33), but recently I've been trying to eat healthier and pay more attention to what goes into my body. I'm trying to incorporate a lot more vegetables into my diet, and this recipe looked promising. I decided to make it tonight; unfortunately, I realized, after a bunch of it was together, that we ran out of olive oil this past weekend… so not being a cook, I had no idea what a suitable healthy replacement would be. I ended up using the spray butter – and I'm guessing that doesn't perform the way the oil does?? Anyway, it's almost ready and I'll let you know how it is… by the way, when you say the broccoli is brown – that just means a little bit on some pieces as in the picture? Thanks for this site!!

Another delish recipe! Even my fiancee doesn't like broccoli without it being loaded with butter or cheese and he went back for 2nds! How many points would it turn to if you added some fat free grated parm cheese?

Gina! I made this over the weekend and paired it with your turkey cutlet recipe and it was FABULOUS!!! My husband and I both loved it and can you believe that my 21 month old actually ATE ALL HER BROCCOLI??

My husband asked if you have a cookbook. If you don't, I definitely think you should ?? Kudos on a great recipe!

BTW, I also made the crock pot carnitas yesterday and those were YUMMY! I love your blog!

I do not eat broccoli, have never eaten broccoli, cannot stand the smell of broccoli. But my DH bought a head of it and I figured that at least this would be easy. Let me tell you… I decided to try a very little piece….which lead me to eating about 1/4 cup of it. I would have eaten more but my DH ate the rest! Thank you so much for introducing me to this. Now I just need to get the garlic smell off my hands! ??

When you cut peel/cut up raw onions or garlic and don't want your hands to smell like you did, all you need to do is wash your hands with whatever kind of soap you usually use and cold water. Just like warm/hot water will set a stain in your clothes, it will set a scent in your skin. You do have to wash your hands right after you prepare the garlic/onions though, just as you do after touching raw meats.

This made me so crazy happy I can't even tell you. I cannot stomach steamed broccoli and am never quite sure how long to stir-fry it so it's edible without being mushy.

I tried your roasting recipe and I love it. I've been doing cauliflower (your recipe) and brussels sprouts that way (with the garlic) and braved the broccoli. It was fantastic. You're helping me become a veggie eater! Woot!
