- 3-4 Tbsp olive oil
- Juice from half a lemon, about 1 Tbsp
- Kosher salt
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
1 Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a large bowl toss the broccoli florets and minced garlic with olive oil and lemon juice until lightly coated. Sprinkle salt over the broccoli and toss to coat.
2 Arrange the broccoli florets in a single layer on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet. Roast for 16-20 minutes, until cooked through and nicely browned.
3 Put the roasted broccoli back in the bowl and toss with lots of freshly ground black pepper and the grated parmesan cheese.
