  • 2 cups broccoli cut into bite sized florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 small pearls garlic grinded to a fine paste
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cheese I used cube cheese
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • salt to taste


  • Boil water (just enough for the broccoli to immerse), while its boiling add the broccoli florets and let it cook for just 3mins (this step is purely optional but I do this to get rid of the worms if any). Switch off. Drain water and keep aside.
  • In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except sesame seeds listed along with broccoli, then add lemon juice.
  • Add olive oil and give a quick stir.
  • Lay an aluminum foil and arrange the broccoli florets, drizzle sesame seeds.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven at 215 deg C for 10mins.
  • Then bake it in toast/pizza mode for 15-20mins(timing purely depends on your oven type)or until golden brown.
  • Change the mode to grill for the last 2mins which gives the browning and makes the broccoli more crispier.
  • Serve Oven Roasted Broccoli hot with any spicy dip or tomato sauce, it tastes good on its own too.


  • Parboiling broccoli not only helps in avoiding worms but helps in holding the marination stick well.
  • You can even add sesame seeds close to the end of the baking time say 5-7mins before the end time.
  • Keep an eye after 10mins, as each oven takes different time to cook it.
  • Once you set the mode to grilling be very carefully as the mode easily burns the veggie.
  • You can use any type of cheese but parmesan cheese is much preferred, I used grated Amul cube cheese.
