Garlic Roasted Broccoli by Paleo Grubs

Summary:  This recipe is one of our favourites at family dinner night on Sunday evenings.  Chris has to be careful not to make it too many weeks in a row.  It is so easy to make, you just need a knife and a cutting board.  We like to chop up the broccoli stalks as well – lots of great food value !  The recipe calls for 5 cloves of garlic but because we love garlic I always add in a few more – for that powerful garlic taste.  Ruth has to stay away from pepper so Chris sprinkles the red pepper flakes on his serving, and we both enjoy the lemon juice !
