Addictive 3-Ingredient Roasted Garlic Broccoli Recipe Can't Be Beat

Sometimes I spend hours making a complicated dish – and sometimes it's the simplest recipes that become a family favorite. This three-ingredient garlic broccoli recipe is one of my family's favorite vegetable recipes. My daughter calls this roasted garlic broccoli recipe "crack broccoli." One bite and you'll know why.

The ingredient list is short for this vegetable side dish: broccoli spears or florets, olive oil, minced garlic and an optional seasoning. The ingredients are tossed together then spread on a baking sheet. The broccoli is baked for about 20 minutes or until it starts to brown at the edges. This broccoli is so good, you may start eating it right off the baking sheet!

Serve this roasted broccoli as a side dish with chicken, pork, lamb or beef. You could even add it to a main dish dinner salad.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6


  • 3 - 4 cups broccoli spears and florets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 heaping tablespoon minced garlic
  • Morton Nature's Seasonings or your favorite seasoning (optional, but recommended)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the broccoli into a plastic food zipper bag. Add the olive oil and garlic. Seal the bag and toss to coat. Pour the broccoli onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle with Morton Nature's Seasonings or salt and pepper. 
  2. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until broccoli begins to brown on the edges.

I’ve been roasting veggies for years with just spreading out into pan and adding oil & garlic, but this sounds like a better way to cook them—more evenly roasted. Great tip!

Hope you enjoy it! Susan Evind It's a family favorite here.
