I decided to give lemon roasted broccoli a try when I was looking for a unique way to prepare broccoli. Florets are roasted after being tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and minced garlic. A squeeze of lemon juice before serving seals the deal.

Ingredients

  • 2 heads broccoli, separated into florets

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Toss broccoli florets with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and garlic in a large bowl. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter.

  4. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.
