Parmesan Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Provided By
Broccoli roasted with garlic is a favorite among young and old. The best part is you put it in the oven and forget about it until 20 minutes later. The basil and lemon add a fresh flavor to the warm broccoli.

  • 4 pounds broccoli, cut into florets
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 6 1/2 tablespoons olive oil - divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons basil leaves, julienned
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted (optional)
10 mins

35 mins
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Toss the garlic on the broccoli and drizzle with 5 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes, until crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.

Remove the broccoli from the oven and immediately toss with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, basil and pine nuts, if desired. Serve hot.

"Great recipe! I loved the lemony flavor even though my kids didn't. I didn't have any pine nuts so I used toasted slivered almonds."
