Crispy Roasted Broccoli (AIP/ Paleo)

I’m all about easy weeknight dinners. Don’t get me wrong, I love to create a lavish meal every now and then but on a Thursday night after a long day of work and my puppy barking his head off, I just want to make something easy. Do you feel the same? 

This crispy roasted broccoli is a go-to side dish in our house for that very reason. It has three ingredients and is on the table in 30 minutes without almost no effort required. I’m not sure that it can get any easier than that! If chopping vegetables is a challenge for you, buy already prepped fresh broccoli florets from the grocery store. All you’ll have to do is throw them on the sheet pan and season them and you are good to go. 

This broccoli is really addictive. Seriously. I know that sounds crazy… How can broccoli be addictive? I’m telling you, my husband and I are usually sneaking pieces off the pan before they even make it to the table! This isn’t the sad, watery, boring steamed broccoli of your childhood. THIS broccoli has seen a serious glow-up. It has a nice, crispy texture and massaging in the oil and salt makes it so rich and savory, they explode with flavor in your mouth. They’re kind of like healthy French fries. 

If you don’t believe, try this recipe out for yourself. I promise you won’t be disappointed. 

Crispy Roasted Broccoli (AIP/ Paleo)


4 fresh broccoli crowns

1 ½ tsp salt

2 TBS olive oil


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the broccoli crowns into florets and spread on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the salt and drizzle with the olive oil. Make sure to massage the salt and oil into the broccoli, this is what makes them crispy! Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve this up with Seared Lamb Chops or my Perfectly Pan Seared Salmon!
