Oven-Roasted Broccoli in Foil

Rated as 4.8 out of 5 Stars

"A simple and quick way to cook broccoli that even picky eaters love. Best part: I don't even use dishes to prepare it (all mixing and cooking happens in the foil). Drizzle with olive oil and additional Parmesan cheese before serving."

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Combine broccoli florets and olive oil in a bowl and toss to lightly coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Lay a large sheet of aluminum foil on a flat work surface. Transfer broccoli to the center of the sheet and fold edges in to create a sealed packet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove packet from oven and open aluminum foil to expose broccoli. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Return packet to the oven and continue baking until floret tips start to blacken and stalks are greenish-brown, about 10 minutes more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Experiment with different cooking lengths until you find your preference. My husband likes it when the stalk is still a light or bright green (about 15 minutes in). I prefer these when they are more brown. Consider adding crushed red pepper, pine nuts, roasted garlic, and lemon juice for some simple variations.

Not a big broccoli fan, but this was very good. Looking forward to having it again!

I've never liked broccoli, but this recipe has come the closest - I might actually make it again! I can't honestly say I "liked" it, but I didn't dislike it, so 4 stars simply for the impressive...

This recipe was great, easy, and fast!

Really like this with more time for browner stalks. I added blanched almonds which browned nicely.
