  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 

Optional toppings: sesame seeds, chopped nuts, chili oil, or minced garlic

Instructions for Adults 

Assist with the oven for safety. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Instructions for Kids 

Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces, keeping them all about the same size. Include the broccoli stems and leaves, too! Place the pieces in a large bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and stir to coat. Place the broccoli in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Add any optional toppings, if using. 

Place in the oven for 6 to 9 minutes, or until the broccoli is crisp tender and the leaves have become crispy. Serve and enjoy warm. Roasted broccoli is also great as a cold snack for dipping.
