A deliciously simple vegetable side of roasted broccoli flavored with parmesan, garlic and a dash of lemon juice.
1 head of broccoli, cut into large florets
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp fresh shredded parmesan
2 Tbsp olive oil
juice from 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper
Put broccoli, garlic, and parmesan (you could also use garlic powder and grated parmesan--shaker cheese) in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste then drizzle in the olive oil and lemon juice. Toss to combine. The olive oil should make the garlic and parmesan stick to the broccoli. Roast in a single layer in a 400F oven for 15-20 minutes until browned and aromatic. I like my broccoli to still have a bite to it and be closer to the raw side. If you prefer it softer cook longer or make the florets smaller.
