Roasted Broccoli (best damn broccoli you will ever eat)



This isn’t an April Fool’s joke!

I really am excited about this broccoli recipe.

I’ve seen it all over Pinterest, but tweaked it my way.

It’s fast, you usually have every ingredient, and the kids love it.

Oh, and it will help you live longer πŸ™‚

The nutty, lemon flavor of this “Roasted Broccoli” could even change President George Bush’s mind I bet!

Roasted Broccoli


  • 1-3 heads of fresh broccoli (washed, 1 inch off bottom, slice into spears)
  • olive oil
  • fresh lemon juice from 1/2 of a lemon (plastic squeeze lemon fine)
  • garlic salt
  • pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place tin foil on cookie sheet.

Place broccoli on cookie sheet.

Drizzle olive oil all over broccoli. Very little is needed.

Squeeze 1/2 of a lemon all over broccoli.

Gently sprinkle a little garlic salt all over broccoli.

Add a dash of pepper.

Mix it all up with your clean hands.

Roast in oven for 30 minutes.

It's great hot, room temp., cold, as a snack, or with a meal.

One more thing…

Last night I was feeling rather discouraged and I was discussing my frustrations with my hubby.

He could have just said, “Don’t worry about it, it will get better, honey.”

Instead, he listened to me, and then he offered an idea.

He pushed me a little.

It was all I needed to get over that hump.

So, I made this.

(Feel free to copy and paste.)

    I am definitely going to try your “eating plan” and I commend you on your weight loss. I need to lose some weight, maybe 30 lbs. I believe that the most difficult part of any “diet” is just to find the right one. Then it’s all down hill. I wish everyone who needs to shed a few pounds not good luck, but my encouragement, for what it’s worth.
