Blackened Broccoli

Blackened Broccoli

I made these in preparation for Blackened Broccoli Tacos, but it’s such an easy process that I think I will make it much more and toss it in salads and wraps. Blackening the broccoli totally changes the taste of the broccoli into a savory, flavorful snack- it’s incredibly satisfying.  I’m guilty of snacking on a whole handful while prepping the rest of the taco fillings…. next time I’ll make a double batch!


1 head of broccoli
1 tsp olive oil
pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 tsp lemon or lime juice


1.  Cut the head of broccoli into florets (~1-1.5 inches long).

2.  Toss the florets with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Spread the florets in a thin layer on a baking tray lined with parchment or a Silpat.

3.  Roast at 450 F for 10 minutes.  Flip the florets over and roast for an additional 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and toss with the lemon/lime juice.
