Oven Roasted Garlic and Lemon Broccoli

This recipe will get even broccoli haters to love broccoli. I love eating broccoli just lightly steamed and topped with a dash of lemon garlic pepper and little pink Himalayan salt, but this recipe is just on another level.


  • 2 medium heads of broccoli
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp pink himalayan salt
  • Black pepper
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 1½ tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp hemp parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Cut broccoli into florets and place on the baking tray.
  3. Drizzle with 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, scatter with garlic, salt and pepper. Use your fingers to toss, then spread out over tray in a single layer. Adjust salt to your taste.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the tips of the florets are slightly browned. The broccoli should be “tender crisp”, meaning just cooked through, not overcooked and floppy.
  5. Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle over the lemon juice and toss to combine. Scatter over lemon zest and hemp parmesan. Serve immediately.
