  • 1 head broccoli cut into florets*
  • 1 tbsp. olive or avocado oil
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tbsp. slivered almonds
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
Optional Toppings
  • 1 tbsp. pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp hearts, pine nuts
  1. Preheat your oven to 415F.
  2. Spread broccoli onto an unbleached parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle with olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and sea salt.
  4. Mix with hands until thoroughly coated then spread evening across the baking sheet once more.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Check the broccoli. If edges are turned brown and crispy while middle is bright green, you're ready to go! If they're not quite there pop em back in for another 5 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and immediately squeeze lemon over top, stirring to coat thoroughly (you may want some extra lemon juice for an extra tang. Consider the 1/2 lemon a starting point!)
  8. Top with seed of choice and serve!
Recipe Notes

* Can sub half broccoli for half cauliflower or Brussels sprouts. Or use a combo of all three!
