Spicy Garlic-Roasted Broccoli is made with fresh garlic and your choice of either red pepper flakes or ground turmeric for a delicious vegetable side dish recipe that’s anything but boring! Made with just a handful of ingredients, these broccoli florets are ready in under 30 minutes! {Paleo-friendly}


  • 6 cups broccoli florets
  • 56 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 23 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
  • Optional add-ons: A sprinkle of red pepper flakes, too taste, or about 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon dried turmeric


  1. Set oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the broccoli, melted coconut oil, and pressed garlic. Stir until the broccoli florets are evenly coated. If desired, add ground turmeric. Spread florets onto baking sheet without overlapping. If necessary, roast the broccoli in multiple batches.
  3. Roast for 15 minutes or until desired level of crispiness is achieved. Rotate baking sheet once halfway through the roasting process. If adding red pepper flakes, sprinkle them over the broccoli at the same time you rotate the baking sheet. Once the roasting is complete, remove the florets from the oven, let cool, and enjoy.


    • While prepping the recipe, the melted coconut oil may cool quickly once it is stirred into the raw broccoli. To prevent it from congealing, transfer the broccoli from the bowl to the baking sheet to the oven as quickly as possible.
