Roasted Parmesan Garlic Broccoli

This Roasted Parmesan Garlic Broccoli Recipe got my 5 year old to eat his whole serving of broccoli. Need I say more? It’s child-approved!! But of course, I was also a huge fan. Roasting vegetables are always my preferred way of cooking and consuming them, but topping them off with garlic, parmesan and crispy Panko only makes it better. A bit of fresh lemon juice brightens up the flavors and adds just the right amount of acidity. Each 1 cup serving is just 3 Points, making this a wonderful Weight Watchers side dish recipe that can be prepared quickly and easily.
