Roasted Lemon Garlic Broccoli

I had no doubts that our youngest child would go running for the hills when he saw broccoli on his plate, but it was still good and he still ate it.

2 heads broccoli, separated into florets
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter.

Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.

We had this with salmon and a baguette.

Did I change anything? I drizzled a little extra olive oil over the broccoli after I put it on the baking sheet, but before I put it in the oven

What did the family think? Hubby and I really liked it. The kids ate it, but broccoli is definitely not their favorite. Our youngest told me he would give me all of his allowance for the next 40 million years if I never made broccoli again.
