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
- 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.)
- 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.
- 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.
