Roasted Broccolini

This Roasted Broccolini is the perfect healthy side dish that goes with all your meals!


  • 1 1/2 lbs broccolini, about 23 bunches
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or grated
  • 1/2 lemon, zested
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and line a baking pan with parchment paper. Wash and trim broccolini so all stems are about the same size.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, salt, and red pepper flakes. Once zested, slice the lemon in half.
  3. Add the broccolini to the large bowl, and toss to coat evenly with the mixture so all the bunches are coated with flavor.
  4. Spread the broccolini on the lined baking sheet. For added flavor, squeeze half of a lemon over the broccolini.
  5. Bake, for 15 minutes, for crisp-tender broccolini, a little longer for charred.
  6. Remove from the oven and squeeze the remaining lemon juice if desired.
