I am always trying to get more vegetables and Superfoods into my diet. Broccoli is a Superfood and cancer-fighting food, and roasted broccoli has become one of my favorite foods…especially this recipe.
I’m not very motivated when it comes to washing, cutting, preparing, and cooking vegetables, especially since I’m usually the only one in my family who will eat them. Unfortunately, more vegetables rot in my refrigerator than I would like. I have good intentions when I’m at the grocery store, but unless I buy them for a specific purpose, I usually forget about them and they sit there until I get the motivation to do something with them. Or they rot. And it really bothers me when I have to throw food away.
So, I was really excited when I first discovered this super-easy recipe for roasted broccoli last year. I make this often, and oftentimes I eat the entire thing in one sitting. It is THAT good!
- 1 head of broccoli, chopped
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1/2 lemon (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Place broccoli, garlic, olive oil, salt & pepper in a ziploc bag and shake. Alternatively, place all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
- Spread out on baking sheet covered with aluminum foil. Bake about 30 minutes.
Broccoli will be crunchy and delicious! If desired, squeeze lemon over broccoli. This is optional, but I do this because I love anything with lemon. Enjoy!
