Roasted Broccoli

This is adapted from a Simply Recipes recipe.

I love broccoli, and this is my favorite way to prepare it. It’s lemony, a little spicy, and a little crispy. This is meant to be a side dish, but sometimes I eat a whole batch for dinner. Yes, more than a pound of broccoli for dinner. Yes, I’m a little odd. But you should try it!


1 1/2 pounds broccoli, cut into florets (if I’m lazy I just use one of those bags with pre-cut broccoli florets), rinsed
2 Tbsp olive oil
Juice from half a lemon, about 1 Tbsp
Kosher salt
2-3 garlic cloves, minced (or garlic salt)
Freshly ground black pepper
Red pepper flakes
Lemon pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl toss the broccoli florets and minced garlic with olive oil and lemon juice until lightly coated. Sprinkle salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and lemon pepper over the broccoli and toss to coat.

Serve immediately.
