Delicious Roasted Broccoli

As a kid I actually really liked broccoli, probably one of the only vegetables I liked when I was young. My mom always made it with delicious cheese sauce (probably the reason I liked it so much, anything covered in enough cheese is good enough for me). I thought that was how I would always eat my broccoli but then I found this recipe and it is delicious! So much different than what I grew up with and it is way better! My husband loves it as well and it is so simple. I make a serving for both of us often for dinners.

Give it a shot the next time you have broccoli!

Here is the recipe and how to make it:

The ingredients you will need are below. I make it simple by just eyeballing it and tossing the broccoli with the appropriate ingredients at the right time, which is why exact measurements are not listed below. 


  1. Broccoli
  2. Olive oil
  3. Garlic, minced
  4. Salt
  5. Pepper
  6. Lemon juice
  7. Parmesan cheese

** I have Basil in the picture below as well, but it is completely optional. I have used it and omitted it and the end result tastes the same to me so I tend to leave it out.


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line a cooking tray with tin foil.
  3. Cut your broccoli in to bite size florets.
  4. Toss with olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
  5. Roast in the oven for 22 minutes.

6. When the broccoli comes out of the oven toss it with lemon juice and Parmesan cheese.

That's it - enjoy!
