Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Rated as 4.42 out of 5 Stars

"I was looking for a unique way to prepare broccoli and decided to give this a try! 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."

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

Delicious! Here's a thought for all the negative-nancy types though...If you don't like salt, lemon or garlic--hmmm. Maybe don't TRY a GARLIC LEMON SEA SALT dish?? Just sayin'! ;o)

Very tasty way to cook broccoli! I thought it was delicious. The only very slight negative is that I cut the amount of salt recommended in half and my husband (who likes salt), commented that ...

Followed recipe exactly and it was way too salty. I will try again using 1/2 the sea salt. Also will only roast 15 minutes as we prefer a little firmer cooked vegetable.

Excellent dish! I was skeptical on how little oil was used in the dish, but I stayed with the recipe, and it turned out great. My husband LOVED it! Healthy AND delicious.
