This garlic broccoli pairs well with just about anything. Ready in just under minutes, this is the perfect weeknight side dish.



  • 6 cups broccoli florets (3 large heads, about 1 1/2 pounds with stems)*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1 medium garlic clove


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. (Alternate method: For a shortcut instead of roasting, steam the broccoli instead! Use Best Steamed Broccoli or Instant Pot Broccoli, then go to Step 3.)
  2. Chop the broccoli into small florets and measure 6 cups. Mix the broccoli florets with the olive oil and kosher salt. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender and slightly browned, stirring once at the 10 minute mark.
  3. Meanwhile, mince the garlic. When the broccoli is done, remove the pan from the oven and use a spoon to stir in the minced garlic to the hot broccoli. Serve immediately. (If desired, garnish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, but it’s not required.)


*Note: This recipe makes enough for 4 small servings: if you’re serving hungry eaters, we recommend doubling this recipe.
