The Best Roasted Broccoli Recipe of All Time
On the 7th day, He rested. But come on folks, God was an over-achiever if ever there was one, and do you really think they “rest” ever? Nah. On His day off I firmly believe He invented this broccoli recipe. And it was good. Well, He, or the Barefoot Contessa.
1 bag broccoli
3 Tb olive oil
1/4th tsp salt
Pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic
1 lemon, zested
1/4th cup parmesan
1. Preheat the oven to 425.
2. In a bowl, mix the broccoli florets with the olive oil, salt,
pepper and chopped garlic. Spread in 1 layer on a lined cookie sheet
and pop in the oven for 25 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, zest the lemon and grate the parmesan.
4. When the broccoli is cooked and slightly brown (you can toss it around midway through roasting for more even browning), toss with the lemon zest and parmesan. Squeeze a lemon wedge over the broccoli and serve.
