Recipe Ingredients for Roast Broccoli with Lemon and Chili

1 pound fresh broccoli
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 red chili pepper
1 tbsp lemon zest
1/2 cup lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Roast Broccoli with Lemon and Chili

Preheat the oven to 425 F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, broccoli pieces, diced pepper and lemon zest ? I used my hands here to make sure everything got evenly coated. Transfer to roomy baking/roasting dish or pan (you could also spread it out on a baking sheet) and bake for 6-7 minutes or until it starts to char a bit on the edges. Stir and change the positions of the broccoli so they cook on the opposite side and bake for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven, salt and pepper to taste and squeeze the zested lemon over the warm broccoli ? doing this when it?s warm helps it all absorb the citrus juice. Serve immediately.
