A Healthy Roasted Lemony Broccoli Recipe
Tip: You can buy broccoli fresh from your produce department (preferably organic if the price is right) and cut it up. The other option you have is to buy it frozen where it already cut into florets and you just have to defrost the broccoli beforehand. Even though frozen broccoli is much cheaper and still has the same amount of nutrition as fresh broccoli, it will not get as crispy in the oven because frozen broccoli has a little more water content inside.
I just pulled my roasted lemony broccoli out of the oven, juiced the lemon, and wow, it sure smelled yummy! What’s awesome about broccoli is that per 100 calories, it has 5g more protein than 100 calories of steak. I know 100 calories of broccoli is a lot, but it is still great to know that the plants you eat have ample amounts of protein to fuel you body. I find this recipe easy to make, and it is a short cook time for broccoli compared to other recipes. I hope you like it!
