Roasted Broccoli with Garlic & Parmesan
Roasted broccoli is the answer to a quick and healthy side dish. Broccoli florets are tossed in olive oil and garlic, then oven roasted to a crisp golden brown.
Servings: 4 servings
- 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.
