  • Melt butter in microwave. Mix minced garlic into melted butter. Pour mixture into the bowl of broccoli. Toss to coat evenly.
  • Sprinkle broccoli with salt and lemon juice.
  • Spread broccoli onto a baking sheet. Do not overlap or overcrowd the baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 17-20 minutes. Bake for closer to 17 minutes if you like your broccoli crunchier and closer to 20 minutes if you like them softer. Time needed will depend on the size of your broccoli florets as well.
  • Serve and enjoy!
