  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • olive oil or avocado oil spray
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  pepper
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • ½ whole lemon, zest freshly grated and cut into wedges
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 to 4 slices sourdough bread, toasted
  • ½ to 2/3 cup ricotta cheese, or cottage cheese!
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  • Preheat the oven 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray.
  • Place the broccoli on the sheet and spray with the olive oil (or your favorite oil for spritzing). Sprinkle with the salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the broccoli is golden brown.
  • While the broccoli is roasting, whisk together the olive oil and lemon zest in a bowl. Toast your bread.
  • Place the ricotta cheese in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy and whipped.
  • To assemble the toast, spread the ricotta cheese on top (as much as you’d like!). Top generously with the roasted broccoli. Drizzle on the lemon zest olive oil. Sprinkle with some crushed red pepper flakes. Serve with the lemon wedges for spritzing.
  • Serve immediately!
