This is a simple, yet elegant side dish. I like it topped with shaved Parmesan but you can also add red pepper flakes or top it with fresh lemon juice.

    So easy and quick! I had to double it because the original served 4 and I was making it for 7, so I was a little worried that the cooking time would be off, but 20 minutes later I had beautifully roasted broccoli…and the flavor was fantastic. This will be my go-to broccoli recipe for sure!

  4. I made this recipe yesterday for Christmas! It is now my favorite way to have broccoli, and I never knew broccoli could be this good. Roasting it brought out such a good flavor. When I made it, I upped the garlic a bit and also threw in some diced onions. I also spread the baking dish with a little bacon grease for a little of that flavor since I cooked some bacon earlier that day. Very good decisions all around! Didn’t even get to the Parmesan cheese, it was so good I forgot about it.

      Just take the back of a knife and smash it over the clove. That's it…no chopping or mincing…just a big smash so it breaks up a little

  8. I have a really dumb question. Are you supposed to eat the garlic in big chunks like that? Or does it just sort of flavor the broccoli but you don't eat it at the end?

    1. yes u can eat it…. when u roast garlic its potency get diminished greatly,… youll still have garlic breath but so will everyone else…its delish
