Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli


"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."

  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.

A subjective matter perhaps, but while hubby and I both love broccoli and eat it often, this was just unpleasant. Bitter and an unappealing color due to roasting, this basically just made our ho...

Delicious! Here's a thought for all the negative-nancy types though...If you don't like salt, lemon or garlic--hmmm. Maybe don't TRY a GARLIC LEMON SEA SALT dish?? Just sayin'! ;o)

I can't quit eating these! I had no idea you could cook broccoli this way. It is SO good! Thanks! Update since some found this salty - I never use salt in any recipe (except breadmaker). These a...

Broccoli fixed this way is addicting! I cut broccoli vertically and use the stalks too. Toss in bowl, sprinkle w/ montreal seasoning, drizzle w/ olive oil and bake in oven. You won't be ab...

EXCELLENT!!!! I tossed the broccoli with garlic olive oil, plenty of garlic (we love garlic so I doubled the amount), kosher salt, pepper and a few shakes of crushed red pepper. I covered w/ foi...

This was really good, and so easy. I steamed the broccoli in the microwave, then added garlic powder (generous shake), salt, pepper, and juice of half a lemon. I skipped the olive oil, and it wa...

Very tasty way to cook broccoli! I thought it was delicious. The only very slight negative is that I cut the amount of salt recommended in half and my husband (who likes salt), commented that ...

Followed recipe exactly and it was way too salty. I will try again using 1/2 the sea salt. Also will only roast 15 minutes as we prefer a little firmer cooked vegetable.

Excellent dish! I was skeptical on how little oil was used in the dish, but I stayed with the recipe, and it turned out great. My husband LOVED it! Healthy AND delicious.
