How To Make Baked Broccoli

Broccoli is a wonderful vegetable, a super vegetable. Here is Karin Ridgers with an easy recipe for a delicious snack or side dish.

I’m going to show you how to roast broccoli. Broccoli is super; it really is a super food. Do try to bake organic when you can.
Bursting with Vitamin C, it’s just such a tasty vegetable as well. Now, simply, of course, wash your broccoli first of all and snip off the stalk. And you will find that the little broccoli florets will come away quite easy.
Of course, you can eat broccoli raw, which is gorgeous when you dip it into humus or a salsa sauce. You can steam broccoli as well, which is very, very tasty. And today, we’re going to roast it.
So, there you are, you have some nice broccoli florets. Try to get them about the same size because they’re going to cook at the same time. One head of broccoli is enough for one, or two people.
So, pop them into your roasting tray. What I like to do is get a non-waxed organic lemon and just squeeze on top. I like to drizzle over with some lovely organic olive oil.
You can use hemp seed oil as well. And my tip is to top up with some water because then, the broccoli will absorb the water while it’s cooking as well. And it just makes it tastier, I think, as well.
You can add a little bit of salt. We use Himalayan pink rock salt, just a fraction on top, and then we roast this for about 15-25 minutes depending on your oven. We’ve checked the broccoli halfway through and it really is doing well.
So, we think it’s about ready now. You’ll be able to see that its’ nice and toasty. It smells lovely.
Now, what you can do on this as well is you can mix in some different nuts, soy sauce, we love dairy free cream cheese grated on top and maybe roasted again for a few minutes. And there you go. That is how you roast and bake broccoli.
