    I was looking for a unique way to prepare broccoli and decided to give this a try! Florets are roasted after being tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and minced garlic. A squeeze of lemon juice before serving seals the deal.

    Serves: 6 

    • 2 heads (500g) broccoli, separated into florets
    • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice (or 1/4 lemon)

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. In a large bowl, toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, about 15 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter.
    4. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.
