Roasted Broccolini

Why should a main course steal the show? Roasted broccolini is a wonderfully easy vegetable side dish that's memorably delicious.

  • 1 bunch broccolini ( roughly 6 - 8 ounces )
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Toasted Panko ( optional )

  • 3/4 cup panko or bread crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
    Trim about 1" off of each piece of broccolini to remove any rough ends.
  • (You can do this directly on the sheet pan for easy clean up!) Drizzle the olive oil over the broccolini, season with the salt, and toss all to combine.
    Arrange in a single layer, without pieces touching if possible. Bake for 14 minutes, or until broccolini slightly tenderizes and starts to brown.
  • As an added treat - I like to serve mine with warm toasted breadcrumbs. To make the breadcrumb topping ( which is totally optional but fantastic to make a weeknight side dish special ):
    Heat the olive oil in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Add the panko and garlic powder. Stir to combine, then continue to cook over medium heat stirring occasionally, until the breadcrumbs turn golden brown, about 3 minutes. Keep any eye on them! They can go from cooked to bunt quickly.
    Sprinkle about half of the breadcrumbs on top of the broccolini right before serving. Save the rest of the breadcrumbs for some pasta or to top fish or chicken later!
