Lemon Roasted Broccoli

I picked up this yummy way of cooking Lemon Roasted Broccoli while visiting my brother. I have never particularly disliked broccoli but I never really liked it either.

I’m an indifferent broccoli person…I mainly just eat it because I know it’s healthy 😆.

This recipe changed my mind completely and now I love it! The fresh taste of the lemon juice really compliments the tender/crispy roasted broccoli. Yum!
