Tips for best, easy roasted broccoli:
- Adjust the amount of garlic powder, based on your preference.
- Amount of oil oil is very important- If you don’t use enough oil, the broccoli florets will steam rather than roast. If you use too much oil, the broccoli will become greasy, soggy and limp. Remember that there should be NO puddles of oil on your sheet pans.
- For best flavor and texture, this should be served immediately because as time goes on, the florets will become limp.
- Recipe can easily be doubled or tripled but be sure to use multiple sheet pans to prevent overlapping and even roasting.
