Roasted Broccoli with Lemon

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.

This recipe was easy and delicious. I slight modified the recipe by roasting the broccoli, oil and salt and pepper for 10 mins. I then drizzled oil mixed with garlic (2 T of olive oil +1 minced garlic clove +sprinkle of red pepper flakes) to the broccoli. I roasted the broccoli plus garlic oil for 3 more minutes. I squeezed lemon juice over the cooked broccoli. The garlic adds a delicious flavor, just make sure not to burn the garlic in the oven! Five stars because it's easy, delicious and healthy.

Made this for dinner tonight for hubby & I. We both liked it. I added Lemon Pepper seasoning that I buy at Trader Joes. So easy to prepare. I will be making this again.

I love roasting broccoli, and this is a simple and delicious side dish. I made a couple of changes that really brought out the roasted flavors. I roasted the broccoli at 425 for 25 minutes instead, and when it came out, I incorporated toasted pine nuts and grated parmesean cheese (a small amount). Great dish either way- definitely one of my go to dishes that has a ton of flavor!

I hadn't tried roasting broccoli before. This was so good, not to mention simple.
