2 Roast the broccoli:

Place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 16 to 18 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Evenly top with the juice of 2 lemon wedges
