Roasting broccoli until it is tender and lightly browned will quickly become your favorite way to enjoy it. Simply toss with a few seasonings and pop into a super-hot oven for great results every time.
1 bunch broccoli (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into florets, stems peeled and sliced or diced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Toss the broccoli florets with the olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper on a baking sheet. Spread them out and then roast, without stirring, until the edges are crispy and the stems are crisp tender, about 20 minutes.
