Roasted Lemon Garlic Broccoli

     Maybe its because I'm a diet, or maybe it's because I'm a vegetable fiend, but this broccoli tastes so good to me!  I'm so used to making broccoli one way:  boiling on the stove, and then adding some butter and pepper.  My husband asked me to make it different somehow, since it was getting pretty boring, so I tried this recipe, and we both really liked it.  My almost two year old seemed to really enjoy it as well, having seconds of it even.  My five year old was the only one who didn't love it, but that's only because I wouldn't let her dip it in ranch.  She's a dipper.  Most likely if she can't dip her food in something, then she will not eat it!

     Anyways, here's the simple recipe that I used to make it.


  • 3-4 cups of cut up broccoli
  • 3-4 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Minced garlic
  • 3 tsp Lemon juice
  • a few pinches of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a large baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients.   Make sure to coat all the broccoli with the olive oil, salt, garlic and lemon evenly.
  3. Lay out on baking sheet so none of the broccoli overlaps.  Bake for 15 minutes or until you start to see it browning slightly.  
  4. Take out, let cook and enjoy!
