I love simple dishes and this qualifies as simple. I love the bright flavor the lemon gives the broccoli but doesn't outshine the roasted flavor. Sometimes I need a reminder that simple is a show stopper and this one is. Read More

This couldn't be easier! A great alternative to the plain steamed broccoli. My kids are devouring this! I might suggest a little more oil and a little less salt (it was fine for my family's taste but others may prefer less salt). This would be great on the side of chicken piccata. Read More

This recipe is best as is but one time I prepared this dish I didn't realize I was out of lemon juice and the broccoli was already roasting! I subbed raw apple cider vinegar for lemon juice and was pleased that it still tasted great. Read More

Prefer my vegetables roasted to steamed and I liked the idea of whisking together the oil salt and pepper before tossing the broccoli in it. However too salty! Will definitely use this technique again but will use maybe 1/4 tsp. salt. Read More

How can you not like roasted broccoli? Even people who claim they hate broccoli would love it prepared this way! No more of the old school boiling your broccoli til it's mush! This has a nice tang from the lemon. Next time I will add some garlic to the mix. Read More

I'm never eating steamed broccoli again! I added a sliced clove of garlic to infuse the oil while prepping the rest of the meal then coated the broccoli with the infused oil and garlic slices. Yummers! Read More

I added half a teaspoon of garlic powder and the next time I will definitely halve the amount of salt. Other than that I enjoyed this recipe as written. Read More

Delicious! Used a little too much salt since my heads were small. But this will become a regular! Read More
