Description

"I was looking for a unique way to prepare broccoli and decided to give this a try! Florets are roasted after being tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and minced garlic. A squeeze of lemon juice before serving seals the deal."

Ingredients

  1. 2 heads broccoli, separated into florets

  2. 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  3. 1 teaspoon sea salt

  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  5. 1 clove garlic, minced

  6. 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Direction

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.
