  • 2 garlic cloves , finely sliced or finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil , separated
  • pinch of  salt (adjust to your taste)
  • Black pepper
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Cut broccoli into florets and piled onto baking tray.
  3. Drizzle with 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, scatter with garlic, salt and pepper. Use your fingers to toss, then spread out over tray in a single layer (or use tongs or massage in a large ziplock bag). Adjust salt to your taste.
