  • 32 oz frozen broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest about one whole lemon zested
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • olive oil cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
  • In a large bowl, toss frozen broccoli with olive oil, zest, garlic powder, salt and pepper
  • Spread seasoned broccoli onto the parchment-lined pan, making sure that they are spaced out to evenly roast, and spray with a little olive oil cooking spray
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden (I roast mine for 25 minutes for a little extra crispiness)
  • As soon as the broccoli comes out of the oven, sprinkle with the freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese.
  • Serve immediately.
