Serve and enjoy broccoli. Optionally, sprinkle some lime juice and some freshly grated parmesan.
Preheat the oven to 425
F. Transfer the broccoli to a large sheet pan. You can also add the olive oil and seasonsings on the sheet pan.

More seasoning options:
Toss the broccoli in some balsamic vinegar along with the seasonings.
Try other seasoning options like onion powder, cumin powder, paprika, or red chili flakes if you like a spicier taste.
Give your roasted broccoli an Indian twist by adding cumin powder, turmeric powder, and some garam masala as seasoning.
You can also try taco seasoning or sprinkle Trader Joe's chili lime seasoning at the end.
