Crunchy Pesto Broccoli

It's burger night at my house! Gotta have a "popable" side dish for sure. BUT it's also gotta be healthy. Move over fries; we are poppin' broccoli tonight.


Ingredients 1 head of broccoli

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tbs pesto

Garlic and salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment

  2. Chop a broccoli head into bite-sized pieces and spread evenly on the baking sheet.

  3. Spray liberally with cooking spray.

  4. Sprinkle very lightly with garlic and salt .

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until soft (turning halfway).

  6. While baking, whisk the pesto and a squeeze of a whole lemon in a small bowl.

  7. Pour pesto over all and toss to coat. Turn off the oven and let the broccoli set for 5 minutes.

  8. Serve warm.


You could also roast the broccoli and then dip it in the pesto.

Swap salt for parmesean if you'd like to

If you're using a pre-made pesto (like me), choose one make with a high-quality oil.
