If you don’t like broccoli, it’s probably because you don’t know how to cook it. That happened to me and also to people I know and really, if you know how to prepare it, it is an exquisite vegetable.

Cooked or steamed broccoli, if overcooked and not seasoned well, has a texture, smell and taste that are not very pleasant. I personally think it has to be crispy.



  • 450 g de brócoli (1 libra), troceado y sin el tallo central
  • 4 dientes de ajo, troceados
  • 2 cucharadas de aceite de oliva virgen extra
  • 2 cucharaditas de zumo de limón
  • 1/4 cucharadita de sal
  • 1/4 cucharadita de pimienta negra molida


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC or 400ºF.
  2. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. This step is optional, if you want less staining, you can mix the ingredients directly in the tray, although I find it more comfortable to do it that way.
  3. Place them on a tray to oven (with or without parchment paper) and bake for about 15 minutes or until broccoli is golden brown.
  4. Serve immediately or store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.


  • If you don’t want to use oil, you can add more lemon juice or another liquid such as balsamic vinegar.
  • Use your favorite spices and herbs.
  • If you want you can omit the garlic or substitute it with garlic and/or powder.
