  • 2 heads broccoli separated into florets
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice


  • Turn the oven up to 400 F.
  • In a big bowl, toss the broccoli with the olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic. Spread the broccoli around on a prepped baking sheet.
  • Bake the broccoli florets until they're tender enough that you can pierce them completely with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Take the florets out of the oven and arrange them on a serving platter. Squeeze plenty of lemon over the broccoli and serve.
