    Serves: 6 

    • 500g broccoli, separated into florets
    • 1 tablespoon (15ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 lemon, halved

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. In a large bowl, toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, about 15 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.

    Delicious! Here's a thought for all the negative-nancy types though...If you don't like salt, lemon or garlic--hmmm. Maybe don't TRY a GARLIC LEMON SEA SALT dish?? Just sayin'! ;o)  -  09 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A subjective matter perhaps, but while hubby and I both love broccoli and eat it often, this was just unpleasant. Bitter and an unappealing color due to roasting, this basically just made our house smell strongly of broccoli. Very disappointing--maybe we just bought a bad bunch of broccoli.  -  08 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I can't quit eating these! I had no idea you could cook broccoli this way. It is SO good! Thanks! Update since some found this salty - I never use salt in any recipe (except breadmaker). These are really tasty. If you fear the lemon might be too strong, use less the first time.  -  04 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
