Whatever side dish you had planned for your dinner tonight, forget it.
You want, no you NEED to make this!
This is seriously the best way I have ever eaten broccoli, ever!
And I like my broccoli.
This easy and delicious side dish should really be labeled "The Best Broccoli of Your Life".
Roasting broccoli brings out this awesome flavor that otherwise is totally hidden. And when you add a little roasted garlic to the mix and top it with freshly grated lemon zest and real parmesan cheese, you have a stellar side dish made with actual real ingredients!

Ingredients (4 servings)
- 2 large heads of broccoli
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 4 garlic cloves, sliced
- 1/3 cup parmesan cheese

Preheat your oven to 425
Take 2 large bunches of broccoli and cut it into florets.
Wash them and dry them super thoroughly.
Put some tin foil on a lined cookie sheet.
Place your broccoli on the cookie sheet and drizzle a bit of olive oil on top, sprinkle with kosher salt and some black pepper to taste.
Slice 4 heads of garlic and place these on the cookie sheet, too.
Now toss it all together.
Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the broccoli is crisp tender and getting a bit brown on the tips.
Remove the pan from the oven and zest a lemon over the broccoli, followed by a squeeze of lemon juice.
Drizzle a little more olive oil on top, sprinkle on some parmesan cheese and toss.
