  • 1 head broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Combine broccoli and cauliflower in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, salt and pepper, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and lemon juice, Pour mixture over veggies and toss to coat well.
  • Spread veggies out on a large baking sheet making sure the veggies are in one layer and not overlapping or piled on each other. (You can add lemon slices here if you like for added lemon flavor and garnish). If using parmesan cheese, sprinkle over veggies now.
  • Cook in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until veggies are fork-tender and begin to brown on the edges. Serve immediately.


  • Nutritional information does not include optional Parmesan cheese. Adding the parmesan cheese would alter the nutritional facts.
