How to Make Oven Roasted Broccoli with Garlic
Getting the slightly charred broccoli is key here. You want to roast until there are some brown and even black spots. This is the flavor! Adding the garlic is a great way to sneak in another superfood, and it tastes delicious too.
Moreover, the prep for this dish and clean up are a breeze. Firstly, just line a baking sheet with foil, add the broccoli, garlic, salt, oil, and chili flakes, and toss with your hands. Secondly, bake for about 20 minutes. That’s it!
Easy Roasted Veggies
What I love about this recipe is that it can be tailored and used pretty much on any vegetable you like. Because the sauce is super versatile, it is perfect for roasting Brussels Sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, eggplant, squash, or asparagus.
To roast veggies, just make sure you are cooking them at a relatively high heat. You want them to char not steam, so high heat is key here.
To save time and make for easy clean up, line your baking pans with parchment or foil. Roasted veggies are great for meal prep and as a fun entertaining side dish. Similarly, they are perfect to make ahead and serve cold or at room temperature.
