Roasted Broccoli with Lemon

this is my favorite way to make broccoli!!, roasting concentrates the flavors and caramelizes the natural sugars. A touch of olive oil gives it a crispy, delicious finish.
Makes 4 servings, 1 cup each

4 cups broccoli florets
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
Lemon juice to finish

1. Preheat oven to 450F. 2. Toss broccoli with oil, salt and pepper. Place on a large baking sheet (not air-insulated) and roast until the broccoli is tender and blackened on the bottom, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately, with lemon
