Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

February 24, 2012

Here’s a scrumptious way to snazz up boring broccoli! This side dish uses all fresh ingredients and is ready in no time. Pair it with Baked Gouda Mac & Cheese, Chicken Tenders, Balsamic Chicken or Simple Grilled Salmon.

1 large head fresh broccoli
fresh garlic cloves, minced
fresh lemon
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt, to taste


  • Pre heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Cut broccoli head into equal size floret pieces. Rinse pieces in cold water and pat excess water off with paper towel. Set all pieces on cookie sheet.
  • Drizzle olive oil onto broccoli pieces. Add minced garlic and toss until evenly coated.
  • Cut lemon in half. Squeeze juice from half lemon onto broccoli pieces. Zest rind of half lemon over broccoli pieces. Reserve other half of lemon.
  • Toss well until evenly coated, separating pieces as to not overcrowd pan. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
  • Place in hot oven and roast 5 minutes.
