This is a simple, yet elegant side dish. I like it topped with shaved Parmesan but you can also add red pepper flakes or top it with fresh lemon juice.

  1. This was the first time I made broccoli that wasn’t steamed. It was so good. I will definitely make this again.

  2. Can we add the WW button to this one? We love this in my house even my picky kiddos! So easy to make! 

  3. Why can’t we print your recipes

  4. Wonderful recipe. I used fresh broccoli. We loved the smashed garlic, as it has such a sweet taste once roasted. Next time I will add a few more cloves since they were so good. Suggest cutting up the garlic a bitnonce done to spread out the yumminess. Didn’t really need the parmesan (we wanted to cut down on calories) but sure it would be delicious added.

  5. I read in the comments that Gina amended the recipe to have 4 steps, and to boil the broccoli. I’m seeing a recipe with 3 steps and no boiling. Did I miss something?

  6. Absolutely bloody FABULOUSO!!! Just love it. Thanks so very much. Lovely

  7. So I made. A few changes. Used a cast iron skillet and charred both sides of the broccoli and garlic  and then add salt pepper red pepper flakes. Added a little chicken broth and steamed it on the stove. – my oven was full at the time. Family raved. Going on the rotation  

  8. Can I use frozen broccoli? 

  9. EASY TO MAKE I LOVE BROCCOLI ANYWAY BUT SPRINKLE PARMESAN CHEESE WAS DELICIOUS

  10. Followed this exactly (as far as I can tell) and the broccoli dried out quickly, without getting too soft, while the garlic browned really quickly. I feel like it needs more oil than what the recipe calls for and maybe a lower temp? That’s just based on some other recipes I’ve seen.

  11. Sorry I will amend it so 

  12. This recipe is vv nice!!….Many Thanks….quite a favorite in the house now!!

  13. What is step 4?

  14. This was delicious!! Now my family’s favorite way to eat broccoli!!!
