Burnt Broccoli (AIP, Low-FODMAP, Paleo, Vegan)

All the cool kids are burning their broccoli, and now I know why. Dinner, lunch, breakfast, or snacks, I cannot stop eating burnt broccoli. In fact, making it any other way now just seems unnatural.

If you might notice, I have an addictive personality when it comes to food. When I find something I like, I make it over and over again with different variations until I get sick of it. Lucky or not, for my husband, it can take a while. For everyone else, it means perfected recipes.

Burnt Broccoli



  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Cut up the broccoli in to bite size pieces. I like to do some smaller and some larger, because I can.
  3. Toss in a bowl with olive oil. You want to just lightly cover them. I would start with a tablespoon, and add in a  1/2 tablespoon at a time as you need it. Sprinkle in sea salt
  4. Spread broccoli out on a large cooking sheet and put it in the oven for 25 mins. Give them a toss half way through.
  5. They are done when the edges start to brown. You can burn them as much as you want.

All that's left to do is enjoy! This is a great side dish to basically any meal. You can even enjoy it as a snack to munch on.

But Wait, There's More!

I have exciting news about this recipe. If you are lazy, like I am some times, you can totally make burnt broccoli on a stove top in less time with less dishes.

Here is how to make on the stove top: Cut the broccoli. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add in cut broccoli and season it with the salt. Let it cook/burn for about 5-10 mins, toss occasionally to get a good burn on all sides.

  1. I want some broccoli right now after reading this! Sounds really good. It would probably be 2 servings for me too. :)
