Broccoli, a bright green vegetable that resembles miniature trees with a grassy, earthy, and slightly bitter flavor. The tree-like structure is made up of a stalk or the stem and the florets or the large cluster of flower buds at the top. While most people tend to remove the stalk and only eat the florets, both can be eaten. The stalk has a milder flavor than the florets, and depending on if they are eaten raw or cooked, the texture can range from crispy, chewy, or mushy. One nice feature about the florets is created faux quinoa or couscous, similar to Cauliflower. This recipe for Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan will allow you to taste the stalk and florets, so you can enjoy the full depth of flavor and texture that this vegetable has to offer. By adding Parmesan, lemon, and olive oil to the dish, we have added nutty and zesty flavors, which complement and enhance the natural flavors of the broccoli. We hope you enjoy our Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan recipe and that it becomes a regular part of your healthy cooking.

Preheat the oven 400 °F/ 204 °C and place a rack in the middle of the oven.
Prepare a baking tray or sheet with a piece of parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Using a small bowl whisk together the oil, lemon juice, garlic and onion powders then set the seasoning aside.
Cut the broccoli bunch by cutting off pieces of stem and floret together away from the main stalk to have your miniature trees then slice the main stalk into large bite-sized chunks.
Place the pieces of broccoli into a large bowl then add the seasoning and toss to coat all the broccoli.
Spread the seasoned broccoli onto the baking tray and bake for 15-20 min or until you see the edges crisp up and the broccoli is fork-tender.
Remove from the oven and while warm sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and season with salt and black pepper to taste then serve warm.
