I’m a dummy. This Lemon Garlic Roasted Broccoli is one of those super simple recipes that I legit make every single week when I meal prep…yet it’s taken me months to get on the blog. Why? Because I figured you guys wanted more complicated, exploding with flavor recipes. But then I realized – what are the recipes I like to make the most? And make most frequently? Especially if I’m doing a Whole30, meal prep, or just trying to get more veggies in?
Simple, but flavor-packed recipes.
also, yes, please admire my AMAZING new spatula that my best friend got me. *fangirling so hard*
The kind of veggie recipes that make you want to eat the entire batch. That aren’t complicated and don’t need a lot of ingredients. That basically, after you make it 1-2 times, you can pretty much eyeball it so you don’t *have* to look up the recipe every time.
I don’t know why I didn’t do this before, *especially* because the recipes that you guys seem to make the most from the blog (aside from the Buffalo Chicken Dip or buffalo + ranch everything) are the simplest ones. Like the BEST Roasted Carrots. Oven Roasted Cauliflower Rice. This One-Pan Bake. Roasted Brussels Sprouts Rice. For proteins, my Ginger-Garlic Pulled Pork. Salmon Cakes.
DUH, DANA. *facepalm*
So I think I’m going to do kind of a “back to basics” recipe series with some really simple, yet still totally delicious recipes – the kind you can either meal prep and eat the whole week, or whip up in a flash on a weeknight without too much effort or too many ingredients. It’s the “Whole30 Fast and Easy” version of my recipes, if you will.
- 1 large head broccoli
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp greek seasoning
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Cut your broccoli into bite-sized florets. Toss in a large bowl with the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, greek seasoning, sea salt, and pepper.
- Spread the broccoli on the baking sheet.
- Once the oven is at 375 F, pop the baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes, until the broccoli begins to brown (but watch so it doesn’t get burned)!
- Eat up!
