Roasted Broccoli with Lemon and Pecorino-Romano Cheese is a perfect low-carb side dish that only needs about 15 minutes in the oven! The Pecorino-Romano cheese is a wonderful combination with this roasted broccoli and lemon, but you can use Parmesan cheese too if that’s what you have.
This Roasted Broccoli with Lemon and Pecorino-Romano Cheese is easy and delicious, and it’s perfect when you don’t want a richer broccoli dish like Broccoli Gratin, but you’d like something tasty for a special meal. And due to the generous amount of lemon juice that’s tossed with the broccoli before it’s roasted, plus the always-a-wow flavor of Pecorino-Romano Cheese cheese, this roasted broccoli is incredibly flavorful.
And this is quick and easy to make! Besides being healthy and delicious, what really makes this a perfect side dish is the way the broccoli cooks at high heat in only about 15 minutes.
This broccoli with lemon and Pecorino would even be great for Thanksgiving, when you could roast the broccoli in the oven while you’re carving the turkey and making gravy. Through the years I’ve also made this recipe more user-friendly by tossing the olive-oil lemon mixture with the broccoli before it cooks, which eliminates a last-minute step and could be done a little bit in advance if you’d like.
Of course you’ll want to serve it on a fancy serving dish for Thanksgiving, but I bet the family would gobble it up off the sheet pan any time you make it for a week-night dinner!
