Oven Roasted Broccoli | How to roast Broccoli in Oven

I love playing with my oven. But for quite a long time, it was playing with me. Now all is well for a while (*touchwood*) and I absolutely love playing with it :D And with broccoli it's a nuetral relationship as of yet. It is not too love or too hate. I can have in moderation. And the taste should be well balanced. If it's too raw like or bland I can't take it :D And I don't like too much of Indian spices in broccoli either. Yes, i am like a fussy toddler when it comes to broccoli :D

And yes, I do have a fool proof, easy peasy recipe to roast broccoli in oven. It is easy as well as kickass :) You will love it for the simplicity of making it as well as the taste :) Play around with the ingredients as per your preference. If you like more chilli flakes than pepper powder, then go ahead with that. The recipe is quite versatile that way as well. So shall we see how to roast broccoli in oven?

Preparation Time : 15 minutes

Cooking Time : 20 minutes

Serves : 2-3 persons 

I Used:

Olive Oil
1 cup
2 tbsp
Garlic Salt - 1 tsp
Pepper Powder - ½ tsp
Chilli Flakes - ½ tsp
Oregano (or Mixed Herbs) - ½ tsp

The Way:

1. Pre heat oven at 200 degree Celsius

2. In a bowl, mix together olive oil, garlic salt, pepper powder, chilli flakes and oregano

3. Add the broccoli florets to it. And give a nice toss

4. In the baking tray, lay a cookie sheet. Then place the broccoli florets on the sheet

5. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. In between turn each of the florets so that it gets cooked evenly. Make sure they do not burn and are just caramelized

Serve hot!


  • You can immerse the florets in warm salt water for some time if you like. This will kill any worms if present in the broccoli
  • If you do not have garlic salt, then substitute with normal salt and 3-4 cloves of finely chopped garlic or an equivalent garlic paste
  • If you want the broccoli to be cooked al dente then cook for 10-15 minutes  
  • You can also toss in some parmesan cheese once the florets are roasted and before serving


  1. Roasting is my favourite way to prepare veggies :-) YUMMY!

  2. The roasted Broccoli looks so good!Such an easy and healthy recipe...
