This comes from Kayln's Kitchen, a food blog that specializes in South Beach food recipes. It's a very informative site, in general and the recipes provide for strict South Beach diets as well as non South Beach. I have posted this sited under Diet WOEs.
Roasted Broccoli with Garlic
1 bunch broccoli, about 1 1/2 pounds, cut into bite sized flowerets
3 T extra virgin olive oil
6-8 cloves fresh garlic
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450 F. Cut broccoli into bite sized pieces, and peel and slice stems if large. Slice garlic cloves, and cut slices in half. Toss broccoli with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper, then spread on a baking sheet. Roast until broccoli is bright green and edges are starting to brown slightly, 20-30 minutes. Serve hot.
Note, my oven seems to run hot, so I roasted this at 400f and it was done in about 15 mins. I halved the recipe, but still used 6 garlic cloves and put in red pepper as well. This was really yummy!
