Thanks! It was helpful. I would like to help people out there through my experience. Being on a diet is pretty much difficult as I used to have these cravings for pizzas and sandwiches. So one fine day my friend suggested me this so called keto bread. It is a recipe guide by a nutritional biochemist, Kelley Herring. After going through her website: //*https://bit.ly/379hIZv*// , I have learnt that traditional bread produces certain compounds that trigger receptors in our brain causing pleasure whenever we consume cheese, pizza,etc. This, over a time causes cravings, eventually making it impossible to burn fat, which is the worst we can do to our body. Also that, gluten free products contain arsenic that lead to headaches, fatigue, brain fog, digestive issues, heart disease, cancer and diabetes. And then I got her guide and ended up baking grain free low carb bread and trust me, I never felt the need to cheat on my diet and the best thing is that the taste was all same. I have a healthy body now, in a shape I dreamt of. I would highly recommend you to go through her website, she is assuring 100% money-back guarantee.

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!Volunteer Field Editor

This was a good change of pace for broccoli. I would serve it to company.

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.
