Roasted Broccoli

Simple and Delicious


  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli, cut into florets
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • Juice from half a lemon, about 1 Tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste



1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl toss the broccoli florets and minced garlic with olive oil and lemon juice until lightly coated. Sprinkle salt over the broccoli and toss to coat.

2 Arrange the broccoli florets in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Roast for 16-20 minutes, until cooked through and nicely browned.

3. Put the roasted broccoli back in the bowl and toss with black pepper and parmesan cheese.
