Roasted Broccoli Recipe

This ultra simple recipe is a delicious way for you and your family to enjoy all of the health benefits of broccoli. Even kids love oven-roasted broccoli.


1 head of broccoli, washed and cut into florets
2 teaspoons of olive oil
Juice of one lemon
Sea salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a large bowl to toss broccoli florets with olive oil. Lay florets in a single layer on a baking sheet. Evenly distribute sea salt and pepper.

Bake until tender, usually around 15 minutes. Right after you take the florets out of the oven, drizzle with fresh lemon juice.

Try oven-roasted broccoli by itself or with any whole grain like quinoa or brown rice. For added texture and flavor, serve with a few slices of creamy avocado.
