Great recipe! Used garlic infused olive oil. So far it has become my favorite way to prepare broccoli. I love the crunch it added to the usually bland vegetable without burning.

this was a good dish. With only a couple ingredients this was certainly simple and quick to do. I added some shredded cheese and melted it on top for a little extra flavor.

Nice way to have broccoli and it kept its colour as well.

Excellent flavor! Only criticism is that some of the veggies burned a bit, so 20 minutes without stirring/turning ended up being a bit too long, at least for my oven. In spite of that, still a very tasty dish.

Delicious and Healthy! Love the thought of not drenching the vegetables in butter. Will definitely make again. Thank You!

Delicious! So crisp and light! We added some minced garlic and chili powder to the olive oil and tossed the onions and broccoli in the mixture.
