This super flavorful side dish goes so well with most pasta dishes and easy main dishes as well!



21 pound packages frozen broccoli, partially thawed

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

2 Teaspoons lemon zest, see notes

1 Teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 Teaspoon sea salt

1/4 Teaspoon black pepper


Preheat the oven to 500ºF and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut up any larger pieces of broccoli into bite sized pieces, then spread the broccoli out over the parchment paper.

Mix together the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, Italian seasoning, sea salt, and pepper. Pour the olive oil mixture over the broccoli and toss to combine. Spread the broccoli out evenly over the parchment paper.

Roast the broccoli until tender and browned, 10-15 minutes.

Serve immediately.


I like to use a microplane grater for lemon zest because it’s nice and fine, no chewy pieces of rind.

If you’re roasting fresh broccoli, 425ºF is a better temperature.
