Roasting broccoli in the oven gives a new dimension to the flavor. It brings out a nutty taste in the broccoli and enhances the sweetness of the red pepper. You can vary the seasonings using seasoned salt, grill seasoning or lemon pepper, but I chose to go simple with Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Roasted Broccoli and Red Pepper
- fresh broccoli cut into florets
- red bell peppers cut into strips
- olive oil
- Kosher salt
- black pepper
- This is more method than recipe. Use the amounts you need for your family.
- Toss the broccoli and red peppers with a drizzle of olive oil. You want the veggies to be lightly coated with oil. It doesn’t take very much oil.
- Sprinkle with seasonings and toss again.
- Place on a rimmed cookie sheet and put it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
sounds devine. but i gotta wait till this NE heat wave passed before I think about turning on my oven again!
I love roasted broccoli. I add some thinly sliced garlic and olive oil, put it in my iron skillet and slip it in the oven. Sometimes it is all I have for lunch. I’ll have to try adding pepper. Have a good day and stay cool.
SandyW, love the thought of garlic added. Yum!
I really like roasted veggies. I do this with white and sweet potatoes. Olive oil on top and cut up parsley. I will try this with the red peppers. It is colorful and looks like the two flavors will be good together. Thanks.
We had this last night and hubbie added mushrooms too !!!!!!!!! Yummy!!!!!!
So simple! This will be a great easy side dish.

I love roasting vegetables tossed in olive oil with a little salt and pepper. I’ll take some with honey glazed grilled chicken.
living in Texas, the oven doesn’t come on in my house for a good 6 months. I put the broccoli on my gas grill, after tossing it in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, and a touch of ancho chilipowder….it’s the only way I eat broccoli these days!
Sounds delicious. I like the idea of wrapping it in a foil envelope and cooking it on the grill outside.
Hope to meet you at the Savvy Blogging Summit.
I am so trying this !
