Sure, it’s simple and healthy but, oh, is this roasted broccoli delicious. Cutting the stalks into tall “trees” turns an ordinary veggie into a standout side dish. —Holly Sander, Lake Mary, Florida

"I made this dish without the lemon zest because I didn't have any at the time and it was still delicious! The broccoli did start to burn a bit by the end, but I needed to keep it in because it wasn't tender yet. Next time I'll lower the oven temp and see if that helps. I ommited the red pepper flakes because I'm not a fan of "spicy foods". Also, I used minced garlic instead of slivered, seemed to work out fine. I'm looking forward to trying this again WITH the zest!"

"I roast broccoli all of the time but this was the first time for lemon zest included. While I may not do this all of the time, I will definitely try to remember."

"We eat broccoli often in our house, and love it. I usually steam it and then sprinkle it with butter and parmesan, but now we like it better roasted. The lemon zest and garlic add a nice touch. Super easy side dish and delicious.

This is definitely something I will make again!

"I made this side for a work potluck and everyone loved it and I had three requests for the recipe. It may have been my oven but I found that I needed to add a couple minutes of bake time at each step. The red pepper adds a little kick that is nice."
