Coriander & Garlic Roasted Broccoli

Today’s recipe is super simple but an old favourite. My mum has been making broccoli like this since I can remember and it’s the way I’ve always made it too.

I remember when friend’s were over for dinner and my mum would serve this broccoli dish, they would initially turn their nose up (because it’s a vegetable – GROSS) but once they tried it they loved it! Which is quite a feat, to get kids to actually enjoy eating broccoli. One friend even got her mum to ask my mum how to make it.

The secret ingredient is coriander & garlic and the trick is to cook it until it’s slightly crispy. The coriander & garlic adds a delicious, strong flavour, which makes this dish a winner, even for broccoli-haters. The slightly crunchy, crisp texture makes it so more-ish. It’s a little bit similar to kale chips, in that way. 

I happen to love broccoli however it comes and don’t think it needs extra flavours but I can’t deny that this is my favourite way to eat it.

My favourite way to enjoy broccoli!


  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garlic powder*
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or water


  1. Preheat oven to 180C / 350F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Chop the broccoli into small-ish pieces and add to a zip lock food bag with the coriander, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. Shake vigorously to make sure the broccoli is well coated.
  3. Transfer to the baking tray and cook for 20-15 minutes until the broccoli is starting to crisp and blacken.
  4. Serve and enjoy!


*I like to use powder but you can also use finely chopped fresh garlic or garlic olive oil.
