Roasted Broccoli with Garlic

2 lbs broccoli

4 (or more) garlic cloves, coarsely chopped

1 tsp salt

2- 3 Tbs olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. If the skins are tough, peel the broccoli stalks, starting from the bottom, using a paring knife – the thick skin will peel away from the stalk. Then slice the stalks into coins less than ¼” thick. Keep them separate from the florets. Cut the florets into bite-sized pieces. Coat 1 or 2 large baking sheets with non-stick spray or oil. Toss the broccoli stalks with half the oil, garlic and salt in a bowl until evenly coated with oil. Spread the broccoli stalks out into a single layer. Roast until the stalks are tender and beginning to brown, about 20 minutes. Toss the broccoli florets with the remaining oil, garlic and salt, and roast them like the broccoli stalks until tender and beginning to brown – about 12-15 minutes
