I followed the recipe's ingredients but started them out in an aluminum foil hot pack. I roasted the pack on the grill over medium heat turning every 5 minutes, for 15 minutes. I also thinly sliced the garlic knowing they would toast nicely in the olive oil. I transferred the contents into a medium bowl then added the lemon juice, additional oil, and cheese; pre-grated Romano in the green plastic shaker, but that did the trick. Fantastic! Read More

I thought it was just okay. I will probably make again but without the lemon juice. I found it to be pretty tart and odd with the cheese. I did test the broccoli before adding the lemon juice and thought it was very good! Read More

So yummy! Wish I would have cooked more. I added asparagus in with the broccoli. I did end up pulling them out of the oven at 15 min but I had chopped them up pretty small to begin with. Will definitely make this again, even my 8 yr old daughter loved them. Read More

This is the best broccoli I've ever had and my family loves it. I've made it multiple times now. I use 2 heads of broccoli and so I double the recipe. I place the ingredients in a large ziplock bag, add my cut up broccoli and shake it around a few times so everything's coated, easy peasy. I like cooking it a few extra minutes because I love the crunchy dark parts that form on the broccoli- delish! I usually just do a quick once over sprinkling of lemon juice once done, not a lot, and use the fancy shredded Parmesan cheese. You won't be disappointed! Read More

I've also tried this recipe without lemon juice and added Panko bread crumbs, and I loved it even more. Read More

Yum! That one word about sums this up. What a simple, yet deliciously tasty dish. My only regret was that I hadn't made more -- at the end of dinner this dish had been completely polished off, leaving no leftovers. Read More

My new favorite go to veggie recipe. Tonight I added cauliflower to the broccoli and it worked just as well. My 10 year old son has seconds of this every time I make it. Read More

Very easy and I thought it was tasty but hubs was "indifferent". I seriously got that answer so I guess he didn't love it but didn't hate it either. I only put a little bit of lemon juice in it but maybe that was his issue. Not sure but I love the roasting method so maybe I'll make this again without the lemon juice and see if that makes him happy. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This a great recipe if you like all the ingredients. I added 10cloves of garlic with 2 heads of broccoli. I especially liked it cold raw and marinating in the olive oil and garlic salt. Read More
