Adri Likes… Roasted Broccoli with Shallots and Garlic

I was looking for a roasted broccoli recipe and I can’t believe I had forgotten about Do It Delicious’ Roasted Broccoli with Shallots and Garlic recipe!  It is so easy and really, really delicious, I could eat it every week.  I came across Jessica Seinfeld’s website Do It Delicious years ago when she did a tutorial for a fast and juicy herb grilled chicken.  It was a simple video she did for a friend who didn’t know how to cook and it really was easy to follow and the chicken came out good (I have issues cooking a simple chicken breast).  Jessica’s instructions are very clear with little fuss, and her website just resonated with me.  I am so happy to have become reacquainted with her site!

What I love about this broccoli recipe is how tasty and easy it is.  It isn’t a “I’m on a diet so I’ll eat broccoli” recipe, it’s a “I actually want and crave this broccoli” recipe.


  • 1 large bunch of broccoli
  • 2 shallots (I used 4 – I realized after I peeled the shallots that each contained 2)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat the oven (with the oven rack in the middle) to 425°F.
  2. Cut the broccoli into florets and place on a rimmed sheet pan.  (I lined my pan with parchment paper.)
  3. Slice the shallots into rings and chop the garlic.  Add to the pan.
  4. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper (about 12 turns on pepper mill).
  5. Toss together with your hands then arrange in a single layer.
  6. Roast until tender and slightly charred, 20 to 25 minutes. (I roasted for 20 minutes.)
