Roasted Broccoli

Need an easy, healthy side dish?  Here you go!

You'll need:

1 lb fresh broccoli, cut into florets
2 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1 lemon
soy sauce (just a little bit!!)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with foil, and consider giving it a good spray with cooking spray.

Toss the broccoli, olive oil, salt, and pepper around in a zip top bag until everything is well coated.  Spread this out on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or so, tossing the broccoli around midway through.  Once it's done, squeeze the lemon and pour the smidge of soy sauce over the broccoli.  Toss it all up, and it's time to eat!

This was so simple to prepare, and was excellent.  My only word of caution is to use the soy sauce very sparingly.  Things get overpoweringly salty pretty quickly.  You could always cut way back on the salt that you initially season the broccoli with, or omit it entirely, as well as consider using the low sodium soy sauce if you need to watch your sodium intake.  Enjoy!
