Roasted Broccoli & Mushrooms

I love vegetables!  I love them raw, steamed, sautéed, and even fried…  I don’t think there’s a veggie I won’t eat.  And one of my favorite ways of cooking them is to roast them in the oven.  Roasting your vegetables allows for better nutrient absorption, while bringing out their naturally delicious flavors.  Lately my favorite combo has been broccoli and mushrooms.  It’s quick, easy, and makes for a great side dish or pasta topping.  Enjoy!


  • 2 crowns of broccoli, washed and trimmed
  • 6-8 oz. mushrooms, wiped clean and quartered
  • 1-2 T. olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • garlic & herb spice blend, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place broccoli and mushrooms on baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, add seasonings and toss to coat.
  2. Bake for about 15 minutes.

Tip: when preparing mushrooms, do NOT rinse.  Get a damp paper towel and wipe clean.  Mushrooms are like sponges.  So save their soaking powers for the good stuff.  A waterlogged mushroom is a rubbery one…

    That sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing. (I need to remember that tip about washing mushrooms! I always wash them like the rest of the veggies…)

    Awesome! Thanks. Two of my favorite veggies in theory, but I never know what to do with them…. now I get them both in one recipe. Stoked!

    My kids were not big broccoli fans. I found this site, now not only my kids but also my husband and I are having this once to twice a week. I recommend this highly.
