Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

    Advertisement
  • Toss broccoli, tomatoes, oil, garlic and salt in a large bowl until evenly coated. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake until the broccoli begins to brown, 10 to 13 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine lemon zest and juice, olives, oregano and capers (if using) in a large bowl. Add the roasted vegetables; stir to combine. Serve warm.

Tips

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Super tasty if you use kalamata olives I also used kalamata olives and I think that makes all of the difference since black olives are fairly bland imo. I also forgot to roast the tomatoes in with the broccoli so when it was done I simply mixed the sliced grape tomatoes in with the rest of the ingredients and it still turned out great. This will be in my regular rotation from now on. Pros: Easy few ingredients Cons: None Read More

I had to review this because it was wonderful. I didn't use the olives because I didn't have anything on hand. I will be making this again and trying the variations suggested. A Read More

This Has Become One of My Favorite Recipes I make this recipe at least once or twice a month. I'm not a much of a broccoli lover but this recipe has turned me around. I like to use kalamata olives instead of black olives and add about 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese. Pros: easy to prepare Read More

PERFECT for college students being in college its really important to buy cheap food and be able to make it fast! This was so perfect. Took me about 25 min (with cooking time). I left out the olives and it was delicious! I enjoyed every single bite. Thank you! Pros: Healthy easy fast short ingredient list Read More

Good but needs work. I enjoyed the roasted veggies. However I would double or even triple the recipe if you actually want to give a nice portioned side dish to FOUR people. I split this dish with my mom for lunch and got maybe 1.5 c on my plate. I thought a tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice was too much; paired with the capers I thought it was too tart. Adding a little feta helps tone down the lemon juice. Maybe next time I'll use 1-1.5 tsp of lemon and maybe a little more EVOO to toss it all together. I used a whole small can of sliced black olives but didn't really get any flavor out of them. I think next time I'll use kalamata olives since that seems more Mediterranean and maybe will add more depth of flavor to this recipe. Pros: Loved the roasted veggies and garlic! Cons: Too lemony for me. Recipe doesn't make much. Read More

This was a very nice recipe! We had it as a side dish with the Florentine Ravioli and they are a very good combination. The lemon was a bit strong but the tender cooked veggies more than made up for it. A possible hint for beginners (like me)-- this cleaned up very easily due to placing a sheet of aluminum foil over the baking pan and placing the broccoli/tomato on the foil.

This delicious side dish has been a favorite of ours since a friend served it about a year ago. Also our vegetarian daughter loves it as a meal served with brown rice. Carol Ridgewood NJ Read More

This dish is great! Flavors are bright and sublime! I used kalamata olives (because I had them) instead of regular black olives and capers. I also used my own yellow pear tomatoes instead of grape tomatoes. I love roasted vegetables but it would never have occurred to me to roast broccoli. Anonymous Great Falls MT Read More

I made this dish without the capers or oregano (leaving out the oregano was an accident) and it was still packed with flavor. Even my pickiest eaters liked it. Read More

Unfortunately my family didn't care for it at dinner last night. I thought it was excellent. I tried the leftovers folded into some eggs this morning for breakfast and it was so delicious! From now on I'll make it for a few days' worth of healthy scrambles and omelets!:)' Read More

Excellent! I thought this was great! I tossed in some feta just before serving - yummy! I didn't have capers and used "plain" canned olives but next time I would make it a point to get kalamata olives instead. A keeper! Pros: Quick simple Read More
