Great recipe Sherri! Thanks so much for sharing this over at Let’s Get Real. Although we are a real food family, I still struggle to get vegetables into my family. I think they are on a broccoli boycott right now. I bet they like this.
I just have to have the lemon with broccoli, this looks awesome. Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
Come Back Soon!

Oh my goodness, what a fantastic way to serve broccoli! It looks so fresh and delicious and sounds so flavourful too. Sharing. Thank you for bringing this recipe to the Hearth and Soul Hop.
This is one of my favorite veggie sides too. Parmesan and garlic are so great together and I love how the broccoli gets crisp from roasting.
I haven’t tried this with garlic, but I love roasted broccoli with lemon juice and parm. Had it just last night in fact!
I love this recipe. I use broccoli often. And I’ve actually made a broccoli soup yesterday. But for some reason, I’ve never roasted this vegetable, although I roast all other vegetables very often. I’ll definitely try your recipe next time I buy a bunch of broccoli. Pinning it for later.
Yum, I love broccoli anyway but throw in some garlic and Parmesan? I’m all in! Looks awesome!
Looks delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I’m always looking for new recipes to eat more vegetables!
