  • 1 Head Broccoli cut into equal sized florets
  • 2 T Unsalted Organic Butter or Clarified Butter Ghee
  • 1-2 Lemons juiced
  • ¼ Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • Himalayan Sea Salt to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt the butter in a saucepan pour over broccoli along with the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Massage the broccoli vigorously with your hands until it softens and each floret is completely coated.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread florets out in a single layer. Roast for 20 min until broccoli begins to turn brown around the edges. Then remove from the oven and flip over each floret. Roast for another 15 min.


*Slicing the florets into equal sized pieces will ensure that they cook at the same rate.
**Placing the florets in a single layer and making sure that they don’t overlap one another will make sure that they crisp up. Overlapping the broccoli would cause them to steam and not roast, leaving you with soggy florets.
Equipment: Large Baking Sheet, Parchment Paper, Bowl, Small Sauce Pan, Oven
