Chili Garlic Broccoli

Chili Garlic Broccoli

I am in love with this dish. It’s all of my favorite things, rolled into one dish. It’s delicious… mild spice with rich garlic and sesame flavors, a bit of charred flavor, but also quick and easy and healthy. The key here is to preheat your roasting pan. If it’s not hot, the broccoli won’t get that delicious char on the outside. So here’s a perfect example of why you should preheat your baking sheets in the oven, just like you preheat your pots on the stove.

First, preheat your oven to 450°F and place a roasting pan or baking sheet in it.

Wash the broccoli and trim the stalks off of the florets.

Take your hot pan out of the oven and spread the broccoli out on it.

Bake for 5 minutes then briefly remove the pan, add the garlic, and stir. Bake for 5 more minutes.
