Balsamic Roasted Broccoli is a quick and easy side dish made with tender, crispy broccoli florets tossed in a simple homemade glaze made with just 5 ingredients. This low maintenance recipe takes just 25 minutes to make, and most of that time is spent in the oven.


  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, freshly grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and position the oven rack in the top position.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add broccoli, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine until the broccoli is well coated.
  3. Arrange the broccoli in a single layer on a large half sheet baking pan.
  4. Bake until tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve with a drizzle of extra balsamic vinegar on top if desired.


How to store: Once cooled to room temperature, place leftover roasted broccoli in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

How to reheat: Reheat leftover veggies in a 300 F preheated oven, air fryer, or toaster oven for 5-10 minutes until hot and crispy. You can also reheat in the microwave but it may loose its crispy texture.

How to freeze: Transfer the broccoli to a freezer-safe container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. For the best texture, allow it to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating and serving.
