  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2-4 Tbsp. bacon fat or olive/avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add all ingredients, and stir to coat. I buy broccoli pre-cut to save time, but you can start with broccoli crowns, just chop into similar size pieces.

  3. Add enough fat/oil so that the broccoli glistens but fat/oil does not pool at the bottom of the bowl. Start with 2 tablespoons and add more as necessary.

  4. Spread into single layer on baking sheet then roast for 15 minutes. Stir and continue roasting until broccoli is brown and crispy on the edges, about 15 more minutes.
