Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Broccoli

Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables, and this roasted broccoli recipe is my all-time favorite way of preparing it.  It’s easy enough to be part of a weeknight meal but special enough to make a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving.  If you’re still trying to come up with side dishes for Thanksgiving dinner, or if you’ll be serving vegetarians, roasted broccoli is a great choice.


4 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened 

2 garlic cloves, minced

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 

Salt and freshly ground pepper 

2 pounds broccoli, cut into long spears and stems peeled 

4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 


Preheat the oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mash the butter with the garlic and cheese until smooth; season with salt and pepper.

Spread the broccoli spears on a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.  Roast for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once, until the broccoli is crisp-tender and browned on the bottom. 

Preheat the broiler.  Drop small spoonfuls of the butter mixture all over the roasted broccoli.  Broil 6 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until the butter is golden in spots. Transfer the roasted broccoli to a platter and serve.
