My kids are hit and miss when it comes to vegetables, but broccoli is one of the few that all three girls will happily eat.

How to make parmesan roasted broccoli
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.
This parmesan roasted broccoli is perfect for a simple weeknight dinner, yet elegant enough to serve to company. However you serve it, you won’t have any problems getting your family to eat their veggies!

I made this for the first time tonight. Delicious! I’ll definitely make it again! Thank you!
Quick easy. Used parts of the stems as well. Kiddo loved it.
I’ve roasted broccoli before, but it helped having a structured recipe, rather than going by feel, and the parm and lemon juice are awesome touches!
So simple but so good! Tastes like you fussed but it was easy!
I made it and it’s amazing!!
Looking for a broccoli dish to bring to Easter. How would this be a on a reheat? Obviously the best scenario would be eat immediately but if it’s not possible…….. ??
The broccoli won’t be as crispy if you reheat it, although it will still be delicious. You might want to consider something like glazed carrots instead! https://www.dinneratthezoo.com/glazed-carrots/
Love roasted broccoli and this version is very good. However, the stems can be roasted very well along with the florets and they taste even better! Simply cut off the bottom inch or so, peel the straight part and cut into disks or 1/2 inch wide strips, These stems are sweeter than the florets and are reminiscent of celery root.
Great idea, I’ll do that next time!
This is amazing! Still didnt win over my broccoli-hater, but she says its gross before her tongue even make contact… This will become a regular for us. Thanks!

I once made a recipe similar to this and my younger sister spotted it and the entire pan was gone in under two minutes, ha! In other words, this is the go-to easy side dish that goes over well!
