Tuesday Takehome + Garlic & Lemon Broccoli Recipe

We're moving into summer veggies- each week I'm receiving more substantial root & "fruit" veggies; carrots, onions, zucchini, and less leafy greens. 
This week our share included:

Swiss Chard
Lacinato Kale
3 Kohlrabi
5 green/early Onions
3 heads of Lettuce
2 Zucchini
2 Cucumbers
a bunch of Carrots
large bag of Snap Peas & Snow Peas

Garlic and Lemon Broccoli

  • 2 heads broccoli, separated into florets
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

  • Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees 
  • Toss broccoli (in a large bowl) with the olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic. 
  • Spread the broccoli out evenly on a baking sheet.
  • Cook in the oven until broccoli is tender when poked with a fork or knife, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Squeeze lemon juice over broccoli
Serve and Enjoy!
