This garlic roasted broccoli recipe is incredibly simple. It’s a quick and easy week night side dish with just a few ingredients. Using garlic infused olive oil is a shortcut to get it in the oven quickly. But if you don’t have garlic oil, just use olive oil with a couple of cloves of chopped garlic. Throw it in the oven while you get the main dish ready — or as I did tonight, while the rotisserie chicken is reheating. Add a simple salad with easy chipotle balsamic dressing and you’ve got dinner on the table.
Roasted broccoli has a wonderful caramelized flavor, and I love the combination of garlic and lemon with the roasted broccoli. I gave a pretty wide range on the roasting time for this recipe. I like my broccoli pretty crisp, so 10 minutes is perfect for me. If you like it more tender, go ahead and roast it longer. However you like it, simple garlic roasted broccoli with lemon is a great quick and easy side dish.
