John’s Lemon and Parmesan Roasted Broccoli

November 20, 2014

If John and I had a battle for the best broccoli, I think he would win. I still like my recipe too, but this one has a lot more flavor. And salt. It’s very tasty.

lemon parmesan broccoli

2 bunches broccoli (about 2 lb)

2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced very thin

olive oil

3/4 tsp kosher salt (or half as much regular salt)

1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper

1 tsp lemon zest

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/6 cup parmesan cheese

Cut the broccoli off the stalk and break into smaller florets. Place on a large baking sheet. Add sliced garlic and drizzle with 2-3 Tbsp olive oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.  Bake at 425 degrees F for 20-25 min, until crisp-tender and beginning to brown. Immediately toss the broccoli with 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, the lemon zest, juice, and parmesan.
