Sometimes I make this twice a week because it's my very favorite side veggie dish! I love it to pieces and could probably have it more than that, but don't want to wear out its welcome with my husband :) I, too, put some foil on the bottom for easy clean up, fit as much broccoli florets (i don't measure, just eyeball) and use one lemon for juice. I also only roast at 400 degrees, for 4 min., then toss them around, put them back in for another 4 min. I really recommend this side dish; it's ridiculously easy, healthy, and FAST!

This is a great way to serve vegetables. I cut my florets small and put the cut side down on the pan because I really like the caramelized part of the vegetable. I also use Reynolds non-stick foil on the pan to save on cleaning time. Delicious. Works great with cauliflower too. Thank you.

A deliciously simply way to prepare broccoli. The broccoli was drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with coarse salt, freshly ground pepper and then tossed to coat. The juice from half a lemon was drizzled over all. The texture of the broccoli was crisp tender. Something I will be making again. Thanks for posting.

I made this last week and I'm making it again tonight! Loved it! Beautiful flavor, color and texture. When I made it last time, I sprinkled with some leftover toasted sliced almonds. Turned out to be a perfect compliment!

This will definitely be a staple recipe at our house! I served this at a dinner party, and everyone loved this little twist on such a familiar veggie. Mine only needed about 8 minutes.

This is awesomely delicious. I was looking for this exact recipe, but had already eye-balled the amounts. I think I went heavier on the olive oil, but if you let the broccoli flowerettes get a little browned it's got a wonderful carmelly crispy taste that is great with the salt, lemon and olive oil.

The best food is frequently simple and straight forward. This is one of those. Roast it to the doneness you enjoy.
