Burnt Broccoli

Burnt Broccoli

Burnt broccoli is one of my absolute favorite snacks/ side dishes. Roasting them in the oven makes them lighter, and more flavorful without needing to do much prep for them.

They’re crunchy like chips; so it’s a great way to get kids to eat them too. Even veggie-resistant kiddos can’t get enough when they try these.

Tips: You can adjust the amount of garlic or omit.

Servings: 4


  • 3 tbsp avocado oil,
  • 5 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 bag broccoli florets, 12 oz
  • Red pepper flakes, optional


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Toss garlic, oil, and broccoli together in a large bowl. Transfer to a large baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. There is no need to flip, you want the broccoli to get crispen and look burnt. Sprinkle red pepper flakes if using.
