Best Broccoli Recipe Ever

So I learned about the best broccoli recipe ever and I love it so much that I decided I absolutely have to share it with the world.  I have never been a fan of vegetables, in fact I pretty much hate them but since I started doing Body Beast I decided I needed to eat totally clean and that included loving vegetables.  A friend of mine shared this broccoli recipe with me and trust me, it is the best broccoli recipe ever.  I will literally eat the broccoli by itself as a meal now.  It’s amazing!

So, let’s start shall we?  I know all you veggies haters and lover want to know how to make this amazing stuff right?

Ingredients:

  • Salt (I used Himalayan Salt)
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Lemon juice (I used the little yellow plastic lemon looking thing, I didn’t squeeze a lemon)

Before you Begin: Heat the oven to 425 F

Step 1: Buy as many bunches of broccoli that you want for your meal. I bought 2 big bunches

Step 2: Cut up the bunches into small pieces.  Basically cut them up into bite size pieces.

Step 3: Put the broccoli in a bowl and gather your ingredients.

Step 4: I didn’t measure any ingredients.  I just added some of the salt, pepper, a couple teaspoons (it seemed) of garlic, and I sprinkled some olive oil all over the broccoli.  I had enough olive oil to coat the broccoli but not that much that it left a puddle.  I just wanted enough to coat.  Trying to keep it light and healthy here folks.  Don’t soak it.

Step 5: Shake it, shake it and shake it so it is all mixed in nicely.

Step 6: Grab a cookie sheet and line it with tin foil.  Lay a single layer of your broccoli on the foil.

Step 7: Pop that puppy in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the broccoli is golden brown.  You’ll know.

Step 8: Grab your lemon juice and sprinkle it on the broccoli and voila, you are done.

Optional: The original recipe had you add a bit more olive oil and sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top but I left that out. I wanted to keep this super healthy but I’m sure that makes it tasty.

Dinner is served!
