Roasted Broccoli

It's fall, so you can turn that oven on again.  Broccoli is a staple in our house.  Usually, we keep blanched broccoli in the fridge.  Cameron likes to snack on it and I warm it up with a drizzle of soy sauce and spicy sesame oil.  I'd actually never made it in the oven but the main dish I was serving had roasted elements that I thought would pair well with a roasted vegetable.  It's also nice to keep things easy with sides that don't need much attention during cooking.  I like unattended sides. 

I used baby broccoli but the normal stuff will do fine.  

Serves 2-4.

Roasted Broccoli

8 oz broccoli, cut into large bite sized pieces

2 tablespoons olive oil

s + p

1 clove garlic, minced

juice of one lemon

grated parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 425 degrees.  In a bowl, toss broccoli with olive oil, salt, pepper and minced garlic. Arrange on baking tray and roast about 20 minutes.  Broccoli will be tender. Immediately, squeeze lemon over broccoli and top with grated cheese. Serve hot.
