How To Make Roasted Potatoes with Broccoli: step by step
(You can find the exact measurements and instructions in the printable recipe card at the end of this page.)
How to chop broccoli stems and florets
- Discard the bottom woody part of the stem.
- Separate the florets from the stalks and peel the outer green layer from the stalks (as seen in the cross-section of the stem in image 1). Chop the stalks into roughly 1-inch cubes.
- Chop the florets uniformly, about the same size as the stalks. You can do a good job of that by chopping from the stem instead of breaking into florets (as in the picture above).
- Peel and chop the potatoes into 1-inch cubes.
How To Season Broccoli and Potatoes
- Mix all the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.
- Place the cubed potatoes and broccoli stems together in a large bowl.
- Add half of the seasoning and mix well.
- Place broccoli florets in another bowl and mix in the rest of the seasoning. Massage the florets until the seasoning gets well incorporated.
How To Roast Potatoes and Broccoli With Rosemary
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/392°F. Spread out the potatoes and broccoli stems on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
- Roast for 20 minutes.
- Remove the sheet pan from the oven and move the potatoes and stems to one side of the pan. Spread out broccoli florets on the other side.
- Roast for 20 minutes.
- Sprinkled chopped parsley and serve.
- Broccoli: Choose fresh ones, the florets should be tightly closed and bright green with light green stalks.
- Chopping: The success of this recipe lies in chopping the broccoli florets and potatoes uniformly, so they both turn out nicely browned on the outside and juicy on the inside.
- For crisp potatoes and broccoli: Ensure that the chopped vegetables are dry before seasoning them.
- More browning: You can get more evenly browned potatoes by stirring them halfway through roasting.
- More herbs: You can add dried thyme and oregano in addition to rosemary.
