One option for cooking frozen vegetables is to cook them with water (see my frozen vegetables with peanut sauce recipe). But, if you prefer a crispier cooked veggie, you can learn how to roast frozen vegetables. For this recipe, I used a 16-ounce bag of frozen broccoli florets.

Recipe Steps

Step One

The first step of this recipe is to turn your oven to 450°F. Then, grab a baking sheet and place 1 teaspoon of coconut oil on it. Put the baking sheet in the oven so it can heat up with the oil.

Step Two

The next step is to place your frozen broccoli florets in a mixing bowl and pour melted coconut oil over the florets.

Step Three

Next, carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and transfer the frozen florets to the baking sheet. Use tongs or your hands to separate the florets from each other.

Step Four

The last step is to roast the frozen florets for 20 minutes. You’ll be shocked by how beautifully the frozen florets roast in your hot oven.

Recipe Tips

  • Be sure to add coconut oil to your pan when you pre-heat it in the oven. This will ensure that the florets don’t stick to the pan.
  • Once you have your frozen broccoli, you can serve it right out of the oven, or make Vegan Roasted Broccoli Potato Soup.
  • Feel free to get creative and use this same recipe for frozen cauliflower florets.
  • Sprinkle the roasted broccoli with sea salt and ground black pepper to bring out the flavors.
