Oven Roasted Broccoli Recipe

 

Are you getting tired of eating vegetables? Here is a great, healthy recipe for oven roasted broccoli that our family loves. It is easy and perfect on the Daniel’s fast!
4-5 pounds (or 2 large batches) broccoli cut into florets
6 1/2 tablespoons extra virigin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 garlic cloves
1 lemon juice
3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts (can leave these out)

Preheat oven to 425
Take 4 to 5 pounds of broccoli (I just got two large bunches), cut into florets (but relatively big ones.)
Put the broccoli on a cookie sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. (About 5 Tbs olive oil, 1 1/2 tsps kosher salt, 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper, but I just eyeball it.) Now add 4 garlic cloves that are peeled and sliced and toss them in.
Roast in the oven 20 to 25 minutes, until ?crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.?
When it’s done, take it out of the oven, zest a lemon over the broccoli, squeeze the lemon juice over the broccoli, add 1.5 Tbs more olive oil, 3 Tbs toasted pine nuts (I left those out.
