16 Ingredients To Elevate Your Roasted Broccoli
Chili Crisp
Try coating your broccoli in chili crisp or oil before roasting. The red pepper flakes, onion, and garlic within adds an extra crunch and a zing
to your florets.
With a neutral oil as the base, coating your broccoli in chili crisp or oil before roasting will also help to keep it from burning in the oven, pan, or air fryer.
Packed with heart and digestive health benefits, a little bit of lemon juice or lemon zest
can go a long way in taking
your roasted broccoli to
the next level.
Pair lemon zest with olive oil and salt for a lemony rendition, or coat the broccoli in lemon juice for an oil-free option. Just be sure not to over-juice your broccoli.
Parmesan Cheese
Parmesan cheese in its many forms — grated, shredded, shaved — is one of the easiest ways to add rich, creamy flavor to roasted broccoli.
Only add Parmesan cheese after the broccoli has been roasted, or else it will burn. For more flavor, top it all off with a sprinkling of bread crumbs.
Alfredo Sauce
Coating your broccoli in this comforting classic before roasting adds the flavor, moisture, and texture needed to take basic veggies to
the next level.
The Parmesan cheese in the sauce will give the broccoli an extra crunch, and the butter and heavy cream base means you can skip the oil and put your florets straight in the oven.
Apple Cider
A cider glaze made of apple cider, white vinegar, and sugar is the perfect way to bring autumnal warmth to your roasted broccoli.
Since the broccoli is roasted before the glaze is applied, you can use as much or as little of
the glaze as you like. The result
is a unique yet irresistible
flavor profile.
