  • 1 ½ pounds broccoli florets cut into even sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, toss broccoli with olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Roast in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned and broccoli is crisp tender (can easily be pierced with a fork but still has a bite to it).


How to heighten the flavor:
Add a squeeze of lemon juice before roasting.
Mix in some fresh minced garlic.
Grate fresh Parmesan cheese over the top before serving.
