Roasted Marinated Broccoli

In this marinated broccoli recipe fresh broccoli is marinated and then roasted until toasty and caramelized. Truth: Broccoli has never tasted so good!

I know, broccoli on a Monday?! {Wah-wah-wahhhhhh}

Yeah… but after the grilled brats topped with caramelized onions and peppers {in bacon fat, wha-what!?} annnnd the beer I consumed yesterday, I thought you may be in the same boat as me… the detox boat.

Roasted Marinated Broccoli l

So broccoli. Let’s just lay it all out there… its got a bad rap. I’ve always wondered why that is… and how that rumor actually got started. I bet it was a 6 year old… and I bet it’s because it’s green. Or maybe because it’s so good for you? Very, very curious. Because I’m pretty sure I’ve always liked it. Steamed, in soup or on a veggie platter and dunked it ranch, I’ve never been scurred of broccoli…never.

broccoli stuff

So hopefully this recipe blows any bad ideas of broccoli out of the water. And it should because this particular roasted broccoli takes a nice soak in an Italian-dressing-like-marinade and then it’s roasted until it gets toasty and caramelized.

Let’s do it.


Start by trimming of those thick stems.

choppin broccoli

Cut those into smaller florets, I like to leave a little extra stem on my broccoli… but you do what you like.

olive oil, vinegar and garlic

In a large bowl, combine 4 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar and 2 cloves of grated garlic.


Add in a tablespoon of grainy Dijon mustard.

dijon and pepper

Season with some freshly ground black pepper and kosher salt…


And whisk away.

toss in the broccoli

Throw in the broccoli florets…


Toss with your bare hands, because who doesn’t like to get their hands dirty… and let those marinate for a few.


Spread those broccoli florets on a rimmed baking sheet and pop them into a scorching 425 degree preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

That’s it. Season with more kosher salt if you like but otherwise these babies are good to go. I made these to go along this steak and these potatoes. The flavor is crazy good and it only takes 25 minutes to whip up!

    For some strange reason I was unusual as a child and have loved broccoli all my life. I think my favorite way to consume it is either steamed with a bit of herby salt or raw with hummus (if I’m really hungry). This however sounds incredible. I’ve recently disovered how good dijon mustard is so I think it’s safe to say that I’m going to love this! Have a great week Laurie 🙂

    I love veggies but sometimes get tired of just steaming or sauteing them. They’re always an afterthought and never super interesting. However, we’re giving up meat for Lent so veggie recipes will come in super handy! Plus I love your recipes.

    Lovely recipe! For some reason, I had never roasted broccoli until recently – it has so much more flavor than when boiled, which I used to do weekly. Thanks for sharing, Laurie!

    I have always loved broccoli and my kids have too. It is so funny because people would always tell me how their kids would never eat broccoli or cabbage and mine always did. I never did roast it though so this sounds real good. Love anything marinated so I’ll give it a try. Now my kids have kids so I’ll have to pass this on to them.

    I’m making vegan cream of broccoli soup for the very same reason today. LOL. Detox tiiiime. This looks great! I love that you marinated it before roasting. It really add yet another layer of flavor after roasting.

    Ann — February 4, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    I have always loved broccoli too but as a kid I would only eat it raw. Roasting is definitely the way to go! This looks great. Can’t wait to try it!

    Roasted broccoli is my fave, it even beats out broccoli with cheese sauce. Lovin’ the vinaigrette too, so good n’ mustardy!

    I’m a life long broccoli lover as well. I’m also a firm believer than any vegetable is better roasted. Love the marinade, looks scrumptious!

    I’ve been wanting a new way to cook broccoli. I usually just have it steamed but that’s getting so boring. And this sounds like the perfect way to change it up!

    Emmanuelle — February 5, 2013 at 1:42 am

    I’ve never tried to prepare brocoli that way, but I will! Definitely! Looks delicious, thanks for the idea! And to go with your detox lunch you can also prepare a soup with the brocoli stems, it’s great too!

    This really sounds wonderful. We adore roasted vegetables and the idea of the mustard and garlic has me ready to give it a go!

    Amazing! I definitely roast broccoli often, but I’ve never thought of marinating it, or adding something beyond olive oil/salt/pepper. I love the addition of the Dijon!

    Audra | The Baker Chick — February 11, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    This broccoli looks so wonderful! I love that crispy slightly charred texture of roasted broccoli. Sometimes I get lazy and just blanch it- but this looks amazing and worth trying for sure!

    Jennifer S. — February 15, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    I’m gonna try the marinade on asparagus next and grill it. I’ll let you know how it works! The marinade was super on the broccoli! So sick of steaming and pouring lemon juice over broccoli. I’m dying to make the white bean hummus (I just want to roast lemons really!) thanks for the great ideas!

    Jana Millen — February 28, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    I am definitely going to try this. Have you tried this marinade on cauliflower?

      Hi Jana! Noooo I haven’t but I bet it would be lovely! Let me know if you do 🙂
