This easy Lemon Parmesan Roasted Broccoli is the best way to eat broccoli ever! You will never want to make it any other way!
1 and 1/2 to 2 pounds broccoli
4 garlic cloves, sliced
5 Tablespoons olive oil, divided

Cut the broccoli into florets that are all similar in size. Place the florets and the sliced garlic on a baking sheet, drizzle with 1/4 cup of olive oil, season with salt, pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes (to taste).
Roast for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges of the broccoli are starting to brown.
