Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Lemon

Sick of the boring boiled or steamed broccoli as a side? This is a zesty new twist to a often bland veggie.  Roasting vegetables may be my favorite since it brings out their natural sweetness.  I stumbled upon this recipe on All Recipes


-2 heads of broccoli
-2 tsp olive oil
-1 tsp sea salt
-1/2 tsp black ground pepper
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-Juice of 1 lemon

Chop the broccoli into small florets. Toss with olive oil, sea salt, pepper and minced garlic in a medium bowl.

Spread the broccoli evenly on a baking sheet.

Roast the broccoli at 400 degrees for 20 minutes turning the broccoli with a spatula halfway through.  It may look like the broccoli is burning, but that is the crunch you want! Remove from the oven, place in a bowl and squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the top of the broccoli.  Serve as a refreshing side dish to steak, chicken or fish!
