Roasted Broccoli
  • Meal

    Side Dish

  • Cusine



1 3/4 - 2 lbs broccoli crowns

1/4 cup olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 Tbsp minced fresh garlic

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


Slice florets from thick stalk (reserve stalk for another use see ideas in post above). Cut into individual florets while working to cut a flat surface through stem of florets*. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place broccoli on a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet (preferably dark coated**). Drizzle with olive oil then toss and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread broccoli out even then roast in preheated oven until lightly browned on bottom, about 11 - 13 minutes. Toss, return to oven and continue to roast until tender, about 5 - 7 minutes longer. If using garlic toss with broccoli during last 1 minute of roasting. If adding lemon and parmesan toss with broccoli after removing from oven. Serve warm.
