  • 2 bunch broccoli
  • 4 clove garlic
  • 5 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Take 4 to 5 pounds of broccoli or two large bunches and cut into relatively big florets. (There is no need to wash the broccoli first; the oven will kill the bacteria and you want your broccoli very dry to roast well. )
  • Peel the garlic and cut cloves into thin slices.
  • Toss broccoli and garlic with approximately 1/2 the oil (just enough to coat), salt, and pepper. Spread in an even layer on a cookie sheet.
  • Cook in the oven 20-25 minutes or until crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned. (You may want to turn the broccoli half way through.)
  • When done, remove from oven and zest lemon over top.
  • Add juice from the lemon, remaining oil, and Parmesan, and toss to combine.
  • Serve immediately.
