Roasted Broccoli with Lemon


From EatingWell:  Winter 2004, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Maybe you've never considered cooking broccoli this way, but roasting yields surprisingly good results. The heat concentrates the flavors and caramelizes the natural sugars. A touch of olive oil gives it a crispy, delicious finish.

4 servings, 1 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Toss broccoli with oil, salt and pepper. Place on a large baking sheet (not air-insulated) and roast until the broccoli is tender and blackened on the bottom, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately, with lemon wedges.
