Calories Per Serving


  • 1-2 Pound broccoli florets, trimmed of stems and cut into small pieces
  • 4-5 Tablespoons olive oil, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped garlic, feel free to use pre-chopped garlic in the bottle
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 lemon wedge


Preheat oven to 400° F.

Put broccoli in a large bowl and drizzle with the olive oil.

Toss florets trying to ensure that each piece has some oil on it.

Add garlic, salt and pepper.

Toss again.

Spread the mixture out on a sheet pan and make sure there is room between each piece.

If necessary, use another pan.

Roast for about 8 minutes and toss gently with a spatula to turn them over.

Roast another 5 minutes, watching closely for some browning to occur.

Remove and drizzle with a squeeze of lemon.

Serve immediately.
