  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 5 cloves garlic peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup pecans toasted and chopped
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Cut the broccoli florets from the thick stalks and cut the larger pieces through the base of the head with a small knife, pulling the florets apart. I cut mine in really small florets because I wanted bite size florets. Place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Toss the garlic on the broccoli and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
  • Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned. Stir the broccoli once partway through cooking.
  • Finish the dish: Remove the broccoli from the oven and immediately toss with lemon juice, pecans and Parmesan cheese. Serve hot.
