1 bunch broccoli, stems peeled and chopped into bite-size pieces, and heads broken into florets
2 lemons, zested then cut into wedges
1 tablespoon olive oil

Not a fan of broccoli? Try cauliflower, asparagus or Brussels sprouts.
Place the broccoli on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Sprinkle on the lemon zest, olive oil and black pepper, then scatter the lemon wedges on the baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway, until the broccoli is tender and starting to brown.
While the broccoli and lemons are cooking, reheat the brown rice.
Remove the veggies from the oven and transfer the broccoli to a large bowl. Add the rice, then squeeze the lemon wedges over the broccoli and rice, then discard. Toss gently, then serve.
About 1 1/2 cups per portion.
