Oven-Roasted Broccoli Recipe with Garlic, Dijon, Lemon Juice

broccoliLove, love, love fresh broccoli with just about anything and everything. I put it in my eggs, throw it in a salad, or give it some seasoning and munch on it for a healthy snack.

This is one of my favorite ways to season broccoli, and it is a stable side dish with most of my dinners as well as a yummy, low-calorie snack. I also often mix it with some spinach, sliced grape tomatoes, a little lemon juice and some fresh black pepper and serve it in under grilled chicken or steak. Tons of similar recipes call for butter, oil or salty sauces like Worcestershire, but trust me, you don’t need it, the zesty mustard and citrus give this plenty of flavor without all the fat or sodium. Keep it simple. Enjoy!
