    This was excellent. I omitted the chili powder and threw in 2 thickly sliced carrots. Using Reynold's Release Wrap helps prevent sticking. It was not necessary to do anything to the vegetables while they cooked. - 11/12/08

    I omitted the chili powder. I put foil on my cookie sheet and sprayed it with olive oil using my Misto, then I mixed the broccoli and minced garlic in a bowl, spread it on the foil, misted the top with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt. When it was done I sprinkled on a little parmesan. A+! - 6/17/12

    I liked it a lot. It is a lot of fat though. I wonder if you could spray the broccoli with Pam instead of using oil. I will try that next time. - 9/28/10

    most of the oil stays in the bag or cooks off. Use olive oil as thats better for you!

    I loved this recipe. I used only 1/2 teaspoon garlic but followed the rest of the recipe. Next time I will try to cut back on the olive oil and salt a bit but this is my new favorite way to cook broccoli which is lucky since I have a bumper crop in my garden! - 8/7/10

    I was really skeptical before trying this, but all I can say is YUM! I love the taste, texture, flavor, everything about this...I don't know if it would make any difference, but I mixed the "sauce" and put it in a gallon freezer bag a couple hours before I actually added the broccoli. - 8/16/08

    I do lots of veggies like this. Cauliflower and asparagus are a couple more favorites. If you like lemon pepper (I use a salt free brand) it makes a nice change of spices too. Experiment to find the combo you like. - 6/10/14

    Excellent and simple way to turn an ordinary head of broccoli into something extraordinary! l'll probably cut back on the spice in the future unless I'm serving it with mildly flavored foods. Will make it (and variations of it) many times in the future. Thank you! - 2/22/10

  • I've made a very similar recipe before and it's so good! Shouldn't one not use olive oil above 400 degrees though? I think it turns carcinogenic above that point. I usually roast mine at 375. - 6/10/14

  • I made something very similar recently w/o the heat--I used broccoli & cauliflower flowerettes, whole mushrooms, halved and whole garlic cloves--tossed them w/a little olive oil, seasoned w/a little garlic sea salt & roasted them in my barbecue for about 20 min. Got that nice nutty brown. Yum!! - 6/10/14

  • No need for the oil or really anything else on this one. A drizzle of (real) balsamic after plating elevates this to new levels, but you can slam the broccoli in there with nothing at all on it and it'll be fantastic. The more it browns the better it gets. - 11/25/13

    It is good without the chili powder, also. I would think it would be good with paprika or onion powder. I just wouldn't use anything flaky like oregano or parsley as it would just burn at the high temperature.
