Roasted Broccoli with Green Garlic

Both main ingredients were included in our basket this week.  I admit the first week we received the green garlic I thought it was a funny colored scallion and sliced that baby up and sprinkled in into our salad.  It was…pungent. 

Anyway, I was looking up recipes for the romanesco cauliflower I also received and they suggested roasting that vegetable, so I decided to do the same with the broccoli.  Here’s how I did it:

Broccoli, cut into florets

olive oil

crushed red pepper



minced green garlic

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  For an easy cleanup, line a baking pan with foil.  Grease with olive oil and place broccoli on the pan.  Season with red pepper, salt and black pepper.  Drizzle some more olive oil over the broccoli.
  • Cook broccoli in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes.  Open the oven carefully, and give the pan a shake to loosen the broccoli from the pan.  If the broccoli looks like it is cooking very  quickly, reduce the oven temp to 350 degrees and continue cooking for another 5 minutes or so.
  • Check the broccoli again and sprinkle the minced garlic over the broccoli.  Stir, and return to the oven for a minute or two.
