Roasted Broccoli with Lemon

Roasted Broccoli with Lemon


Maybe you've never considered cooking broccoli this way, but roasting yields surprisingly good results. The heat concentrates the flavors and caramelizes the natural sugars. A touch of olive oil gives it a crispy, delicious finish.
Makes 4 servings, 1 cup each

Ingredients:
4 cups broccoli florets
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
Lemon wedges


Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 450F. 2. Toss broccoli with oil, salt and pepper. Place on a large baking sheet (not air-insulated) and roast until the broccoli is tender and blackened on the bottom, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately, with lemon wedges

No, I haven't. Thanks for the post. Broccoli has been my veggie of choice lately and I'm looking for different ways to have it.
