How to Roast Broccoli

You'll find a detailed ingredient list and step-by-step instructions in the recipe below, but let's go over the basics:

How Long to Roast Broccoli

In an oven preheated to 400 degrees F, your broccoli should be perfectly roasted in about 20 minutes. It’ll be tender and lightly browned when it’s ready to eat. 

How to Make Roasted Broccoli

Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect when you roast broccoli at home: 

  1. Cut the florets from the stalk. 
  2. Peel the stalk and cut into slices. 
  3. Toss the florets and stem pieces with oil, then transfer to a baking sheet. 
  4. Season with salt and pepper and roast in the preheated oven.

Can You Roast Frozen Broccoli? 

While this recipe works best with fresh florets, you can technically make it with frozen broccoli. Don’t thaw the broccoli at all before roasting, just stick it in the oven straight from the freezer. 

How to Store Roasted Broccoli

If you have leftover roasted broccoli, you can store it in an airtight container for three to five days. Reheat it in the oven instead of in the microwave for the crispiest results.
