  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon salt, fresh lemon juice, sesame seeds, grated Parmesan, and/or shredded cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the broccoli onto a rimmed baking sheet and toss with the olive oil, coating and mixing well until all of the florets are a little shiny and coated with oil.
  • Roast for 15-18 minutes or until tender.
  • Sprinkle with salt, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, sesame seeds, grated Parmesan, and/or shredded cheese as desired.


  • To roast frozen broccoli: Place a pan coated with olive oil into an oven and preheat to 425°F. Empty bag of frozen broccoli florets into a bowl. Toss with 1-2 tbsp olive oil. Spread onto preheated pan and roast for 20-25 minutes, tossing once halfway through. Remove from oven and serve warm. 
  • Aim for most of the florets to be about the same size so they cook evenly.
  • You can put aside some for a baby before you add any salt.
  • Serve with a dip (if your kids like dips!) like Ketchup, Ranch, guacamole, or salsa.
