This quick broccoli side dish recipe gets heat from your choice of pepper. If you prefer things on the mild side, use a mini red bell pepper instead of the chile pepper. Serve alongside roasted chicken or salmon or toss with pearled barley for a healthy grain salad.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Toss broccoli, chile, oil and salt in a large bowl. Spread evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.


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.
