About this recipe: I was looking for a unique way to prepare broccoli and decided to give this a try! Florets are roasted after being tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and minced garlic. A squeeze of lemon juice before serving seals the deal.


Serves: 6 

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

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6.
  2. In a large bowl, toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking tray.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.

Flavour tip

Add a pinch or two of red chilli flakes before roasting for a bit of heat.
