  • 2 lbs fresh broccoli (about 3 med crowns), broken into florets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice plus zest
  • 1 whole lemon, thinly sliced and seeds removed
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  2. Then, drizzle with olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, lemon zest, thinly sliced lemon, sea salt, and ground black pepper.
  3. Lightly toss the broccoli to sort with the seasonings and then spread the broccoli back out as evenly as possible.
  4. Place in the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees F, or until the broccoli begins to turn golden brown and is mostly tender. The lemon slices will also start to get all goldenly-looking and delicious.
