My Secret Broccoli Recipe

Here's how kind I am people - I'm going to give away my secret broccoli recipe. This is probably the one thing I cook that makes Brooke classify me as a kitchen genius (I don't think she's actually ever said that, but oh well:). It's really easy too, it just takes a little more work than your standard vegetable fair. It's so good, if you make a big batch of it, it can be it's own side dish instead of a vegetable accompaniment. You can do this on the grill too, instead of roasting it in the oven - just grill on indirect heat for about 15 minutes or until it starts to blacken on the edges.

Serves 4

  • 1 Big Bunch Organic Broccoli - Cut into big florets
  • 1 Organic Lemon
  • From the cupboard - 1.5 Tbls Olive oil, 2 cloves garlic - peeled & pressed, 1 tsp Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 or preheat the grill for indirect heat
  2. Put the broccoli in a good sized bowl and pour the olive oil on top. Throw in the pressed garlic, salt & pepper and toss the broccoli to get the goodness spread around
  3. Pour the broccoli into a 13x9 inch pan or onto a foil lined baking sheet and put it in the oven for 20 minutes
  4. Pull it out of the oven and squeeze the lemon juice onto the broccoli, making sure you get it onto all of the florets
  5. Enjoy!
