This has got to be my ABSOLUTE favourite way of serving broccoli. I actually enjoy snacking on a bowl of these with some raita to dip into, they are THAT good! Plus, it does help that they are just so very easy to prepare.

Ingredients
1
head of broccoli, cut into florets
2-4 tbsp
oil
salt and black pepper to taste
1-2
cloves garlic, finely minced or crushed to a paste
1 tsp
chilli flakes
juice of half a lemon
Instructions 

Mix the oil, salt, black pepper, garlic, chilli flakes and lemon juice in a bowl. Pour over the broccoli florets and gently toss together. Spread over a foil-lined baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 200 C for about 10 minutes, turn them over and bake for another 5-8 minutes or until the florets are beginning to colour around the edges and are crispy.

Remove and serve as a side or on their own with a dip of your choice.

Enjoy! :)

Garlic sauce would be lovely with these. Or a red chilli sauce if you like a bit of heat. :)

Hi Fauzia,

do we need to blanch these before roasting?
