Roasted Broccoli


revised34I LOVE TO ROAST VEGETABLES!! You can reduce the amount of fat required by using dry heat to soften vegetables. Dry heat (roasting, grilling, broiling, etc.) also does a much better job of preserving the nutrients of the vegetables than wet heat (steaming, boiling, poaching, etc.). This is a very simple recipe, and the key to its success is in the seasoning. I choose an herbed sea salt and freshly ground pepper along with a good quality olive oil.



  • 14 ounces broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cut broccoli florets from the stalk. Peel the stalk and slice into 1/4-inch slices. Mix florets and stem pieces with olive oil in a bowl and transfer to a baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven until broccoli is tender and lightly browned, about 18 minutes.

About Worth Stopping By . . .

I am a blogger who would rather talk than write. I enjoy traveling, family time, friends and food/fine dining. I have made some real efforts in the kitchen lately, and I blog in order to document and motivate myself to: 1.) fully use all of the fresh ingredients in my kitchen and 2.) cook healthy, creative meals.
