  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli (1 large or 2 smaller heads broccoli), cut into 1 1/2-inch florets, stems peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  Wash and trim broccoli into florets and stems.  

  2. On a large baking sheet, sprinkle the broccoli minced garlic, then drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Toss to coat evenly.  

  3. Roast broccoli in the oven for 14-18 minutes, tossing halfway through, until lightly browned on bottoms or around edges and the broccoli is tender-crisp. 

  4. Transfer roasted broccoli with garlic to a bowl and toss with remaining olive oil, lemon juice, and Parmesan cheese.  Taste and season with additional salt or pepper as needed.  Serve immediately.
