Oven Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan
- 1 1/2 pounds broccoli, cut into florets of even size
- 3-4 Tbsp olive oil
- Juice from half a lemon, about 1 Tbsp
- Kosher salt
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
1 Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 425°F
2 Toss broccoli and garlic with olive oil, lemon juice, salt: In a large bowl toss the broccoli florets and minced garlic with olive oil and lemon juice until lightly coated. Sprinkle salt over the broccoli and toss to coat.
3 Arrange florets in a single layer on baking sheet: Arrange the broccoli florets in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been rubbed with some olive oil or lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
4 Roast for 16-20 minutes: Roast at 425°F for 16-20 minutes until cooked through (check by poking with a fork, should be fork tender) and lightly browned. The browned bits are the best! So don’t worry if you see some charring.
5 Toss with Parmesan and black pepper: Put the roasted broccoli back in the bowl and toss with lots of freshly ground black pepper and the grated parmesan cheese.
