Oven Roasted Caramelized Broccoli Recipe
This Oven Roasted Caramelized Broccoli Recipe is a must try. My kids rave about this broccoli. They even ask to take it to school for snack! I’m not even kidding! Once you try broccoli this way I highly doubt you will ever go back to making it any other way. Guess what?! It’s also Paleo Approved! There is a delicious way to eat your greens!
The method is simple. All it takes is a bit of olive oil, sea salt and broccoli to make a healthy treat. When you roast the broccoli at a high temperature it caramelizes and creates a crispy, sweet and almost candy like flavor! It’s not burnt! It’s caramelized. We all fit over the darker caramelized pieces too!
1 Bag of fresh broccoli, trimmed and cut into spears1/4 cup olive oilsea salt to taste
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Place the trimmed broccoli in a baggie with 1/4 cup olive oil and sea salt. Shake it until the oil completely covers all of it.
- Lay the trimmed broccoli smooth side down on a baking sheet.
- Bake for approximately 15 minutes until you get a golden color broccoli. Be sure to watch it closely because you don’t want it to burn.
Pro Tip: One of my favorite tips for baking is the silicone baking mat. I use it for everything from broccoli to cookies!
