Ingredients

  • Seal the bag and shake to coat evenly.
  • Pour the broccoli onto the sheet pan in a single layer.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  • Remove the pan from the oven. Sprinkle the parmesan and parsley over the broccoli and drizzle with lemon juice, then serve, garnished with lemon wedges if desired.

Notes

1. If you want your broccoli to stay bright green rather than turning more of an olive color, try blanching it for 2-3 minutes before roasting. 2. Into spicy food? Add some crushed pepper flakes for a little heat! 3. I use parsley because I always have it on hand, but other herbs would also be great like chives, thyme or basil.
