Print Email


1 – 2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed through a garlic press
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
pinch of red pepper flakes
zest of one lemon


Preheat oven to 375°F. coat a rimmed baking sheet with a little bit of olive oil (I use my hands to cover the pan).

Place broccoli in the pan. Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil onto broccoli. Using your hands, coat the broccoli. Sprinkle with Celtic sea salt and pepper. Using your hands one last time, coat all the broccoli.

Bake for 25 – 35 minutes or until the broccoli starts to turn golden, but not burnt.

While the broccoli is roasting, combine, garlic, remaining olive oil, Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes and lemon zest in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.

When broccoli is ready, toss immediately in the garlic paste mixture.
