I promise you won’t regret roasting potatoes and broccoli. This recipe is great, as written. But, one of the things that I love about both of these vegetables is the way that they can support a variety of spices, toppings, and sauces.
Roasting Broccoli and Potatoes
My go-to potatoes for roasting are baby potatoes. I give them a quick scrub and then slice them in half. However, any type of potato will work – just cut them to the size you like best. I usually use pieces 1 inch or smaller for quick, even roasting.
Regardless of the potatoes you use, leave the potato peeler in the drawer. You don’t need it. That crispy exterior makes roasting broccoli and potatoes one of my favorite ways to enjoy these vegetables.
Broccoli and Potato Recipe
You’ll need the following ingredients to make this recipe:
- red or golden potatoes
- broccoli crowns
- olive oil
- kosher salt and black pepper
- garlic powder and onion powder
To start, preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the potatoes on a large baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil. Then, stir together the salt, pepper, garlic, and onion powder in a small bowl.
Sprinkle the potatoes with about half of the spice mixture. Then, toss the potatoes with your hands to coat them thoroughly. Roast them for about 30 minutes, until tender and beginning to crisp.
While the potatoes are in the oven, place the broccoli in a large bowl and drizzle with the remaining oil. Then, sprinkle with the remaining spices and toss well to coat.
Remove the potatoes from the oven, stir, and add the broccoli to the pan. Roast for an additional 14-16 minutes, until the broccoli is tender-crisp with lightly browned edges. Serve warm.
