How to make it
- Preheat oven to 425 deg. F.
- Cut the thick bottom parts of the broccoli off and discard. Slice the remaining stem(s) into slightly more than 1/4 inch thick slices. Separate the florets into somewhat sizable chunks. Put the stems and florets in a bowl, and toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Scatter the veggies on a baking sheet and place on the center rack in the oven. Roast for about 10-12 minutes, then remove sheet and stir the broccoli. Add the sliced garlic cloves at this point, if desired. Put back in the oven and roast for another 5-10 minutes until broccoli is crisp-tender and some parts are nicely browned.
- Remove the broccoli and place back in the bowl. Toss in lemon zest and lemon juice to taste, Parmesan cheese, and capers and basil (if using). Taste to adjust seasoning.
- Make Ahead: This dish can be made the day before. Gently re-warm before serving.
