This recipe couldn’t be any easier. You’ll need some fresh broccoli florets, olive oil, seasonings and parmesan cheese. The broccoli is coated in the olive oil and seasonings, then roasted to golden brown perfection.
The final step in the process is to add a sprinkling of parmesan cheese, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a little chopped parsley. I promise you, there will be no leftovers of this amazing veggie dish!
I like to serve my parmesan roasted broccoli with lemon wedges as garnish, but that’s completely optional.

Parmesan Roasted Broccoli
This parmesan roasted broccoli is seasoned with olive oil, parmesan and herbs. Put it in a hot oven and cook until tender and browned for the best broccoli you'll ever have!
- 4 cups broccoli florets
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning or equal parts garlic powder, dried oregano and dried basil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- cooking spray
- lemon wedges optional garnish
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
Place the broccoli florets in a gallon sized freezer bag. Add the olive oil, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.
Seal the bag and shake to coat evenly.
Pour the broccoli onto the sheet pan in a single layer.
Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Remove the pan from the oven. Sprinkle the parmesan and parsley over the broccoli and drizzle with lemon juice, then serve, garnished with lemon wedges if desired.
1. If you want your broccoli to stay bright green rather than turning more of an olive color, try blanching it for 2-3 minutes before roasting. 2. Into spicy food? Add some crushed pepper flakes for a little heat! 3. I use parsley because I always have it on hand, but other herbs would also be great like chives, thyme or basil.
