This was not a common veggie in my kitchen until I moved to Melbourne. But here, I make this simple dish very often and serve as sides. We are not a big fan of steamed broccoli but roasted broccoli is a hit in our home.
Roasted broccoli with garlic is a very simple and easy dish. Just 3 ingredients and a few minutes in the oven to make this unbelievably easy dish. All you need is broccoli, garlic, olive oil, and of course, salt. To make this dish, I wash and pat dry broccoli florets. I then thinly slice the garlic cloves and combine all the ingredients together. I bake it in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Sometimes, I squeeze in some lemon juice before serving, but that is totally optional. The dish is ready in less than 15 minutes.
Make these healthy, crunchy bites of goodness and you will never want to go back to any other way of eating broccoli.
