Over the weekend I ate roasted vegetables. I never remember to roast anything except potatoes, so I wanted to give this a try.
3 c. loosely chopped fresh broccoli
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tbsp canola oil
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 lemon's worth of zest
In a large bowl, mix broccoli and oil. Add garlic, salt, and pepper. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Bake at 375* for about 25 minutes. 15 minutes in, flip over the pieces to ensure even browning.
Just before serving, toss in the lemon zest. Serve with lemon wedges- tastes great with fresh lemon juice squeezed over.
Verdict: First and second son said "I don't like it" Husband said "I'm not a big fan of cooked vegetables".
I thought it was pretty good. The lemon zest really added to it. Next time I'll use a second clove of garlic.
