Baked Broccoli with Garlic

I have been asked what my favorite, EASY side dishes are and below is one of those dishes that we have at least once a week with beef, salmon, or chicken.

I think the best way to have broccoli is baked because it allows the stems to soften up, but by adding olive oil and seasonings it also helps it to crisp up and brown.

 Add garlic to this dish and it really blows any steamed broccoli out of the water!

So, without further ado, here is my baked broccoli that I eat weekly...

Ingredients: {4 servings}

  • 2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets 
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
Turn oven on to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper. Mix all ingredients together in a big bowl with your hands ensuring olive oil covers all broccoli florets. Place broccoli on lined baking sheet and evenly spread out. Season with more sea salt and pepper. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes or until broccoli becomes tender and starts to brown. Add as a side dish to your entree and enjoy!
