Looking to spruce up your side of vegetables for dinner? Try this Lemon Garlic Roasted Artisan Broccoli for a nice refreshing spin on roasted vegetables. This roasted broccoli makes the perfect side dish to accompany any meal. Artisan broccoli, garlic, lemon juice, and oil are all you need for this tasty recipe.
Side dishes can sometimes be an afterthought during busy weeks. We often find ourselves steaming green beans or prepping a quick salad for easy sides. Well, if you like broccoli as much as I do, you will like how easy and tasty this simple preparation is. Roasting veggies is one of my favorite ways to enjoy everything from broccoli and Brussels sprouts to carrots and cauliflower. Roasting brings out any natural sweetness in the vegetables and gives them a great texture.
Often with kids, we’re used to preparing vegetables one way. With broccoli, it was always steamed growing up (and probably topped with cheese). If your kids are having a hard time with a vegetable, look at other ways to prepare it. Maybe they like it raw with Ranch for dipping or steamed, mashed, roasted or sautéed.
What we love about this Lemon Garlic Roasted Artisan Broccoli
This recipe adds lots of flavor to artisan broccoli with garlic and fresh lemon juice. Lemon juice is a great way to really brighten up the flavor of dishes without adding lots of salt. More reasons we love this recipe:
- Loaded with flavor
- Easy to make
- Just five ingredients
- Family friendly
- Broccoli is loaded with Vitamins K & Vitamin C, fiber, and may even protect you from certain cancers. Broccoli may also help inflammation in the body.
As an easy side dish, it’s still elegant enough to serve for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other special occasion! But we make it quite often to go with any chicken or one pot meals.
