The Best Roasted Broccoli

Seriously the most yummy, tangy, crunchy, delicious broccoli. I could munch on this stuff like popcorn, but it makes for a perfect side dish and works great as a mix in for a salad or grain bowl!

Total Time:30 mins


  • 1 large head of broccoli
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 half lemon (use zest and juice)
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste (I like to use a really generous amount)


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Chop up broccoli into roughly even pieces (I like to use the stems chopped up too).
  • ¬†Spread out the broccoli in an even layer onto a sheet pan lined with foil.
  • Drizzle over olive oil, lemon zest, juice, chili flakes and garlic powder, along with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until pieces of the broccoli start to blacken (those are my favorite parts...so crunchy!). Toss the broccoli around on the pan about halfway through roasting.¬†
