Oven Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

I love to oven roast almost any vegetable but broccoli and cauliflower are my favorite.  When they are roasted in the oven they get a little nutty flavor to them and get a crunchy texture which is delicious.


1 head of broccoli (cut into florets)
1 head of cauliflower (cut into florets)
2-3 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Jane's Krazy Mixed up Salt (or Kosher salt or Sea salt)
Fresh cracked black pepper


Place broccoli and cauliflower florets on a cookie sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with Jane's Krazy Mixed up Salt and Fresh cracked pepper.  Toss with hands to coat vegetables.  Place in 400 degree oven and roast for 45 min - 1 hr going into oven periodically to toss broccoli and cauliflower around with a spatula or wooden spoon.


  1. Looks so simple to make! I love the crunch that you get from oven roasting too, you just can't get that from frying it without burning it.

  2. I don't think I have ever oven roasted broccoli, but I definitely will now!Yum.

  3. Does this help to lock the nutrition into the broccoli? I fear that boiling causes vitamins to seep out. Always looking for healthier ways to cook.

  4. Roasting vegetables I think is definitely a better option to help keep in the nutrients rather than boiling. If you are concerned about losing nutrients then do not over cook them. Roast them just until they are bright green and tender.
