  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Remove the individual florets from the head of broccoli and cut them into bite-sized pieces.
  • On a baking sheet, toss the broccoli florets in olive oil and minced garlic and season with salt and pepper. Spread them out into an even layer on the baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until edges are crispy and slightly browned.
  • Garnish with freshly shaved parmesan and a squeeze of lemon. Serve immediately.



  • I always recommend a block of parmigiano reggiano that you grate yourself versus pre-grated cheese, for the most robust flavor.
  • Heavy duty commercial sheet pans are the best for not warping in the oven as well.
