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.

Roasted Garlic Parmesan Broccoli


  • 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


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mash the butter with the garlic and cheese until smooth; season with salt and pepper.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
