I am one of those people that loves broccoli. Always have. Always will. In college, I was made fun of incessantly by my neighbor because he claimed I always made the apartment hallway smell like broccoli, (or "stink like broccoli," as he would say). It's just such a wonderful vegetable, and you can feel how healthy it is for you every bite you take. Roasting the broccoli like this really brings out the flavor of this veggie and I like that I can use it as a side dish or make it into a meal and serve it over rice. 



Soy, Sesame and Ginger Broccoli

by colleen

What you need:  broccoli_soy_ginger         

  • 1 lb fresh broccoli florets, cleaned
  • 1/2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

What you do:

    Preheat oven to 450 F. Cut broccoli into 2" long pieces. Place broccoli in a mixing bowl and toss with olive oil, soy sauce, fresh grated ginger and sesame oil. When broccoli is coated, spread florets evenly on a cookie sheet and roast 10 minutes. Stir, and roast about 5 more minutes or until broccoli is tender and slightly brown. When broccoli is roasting for the last 5 minutes, place sesame seeds in a small skillet and toast over high heat for about a minute. Remove from heat. Remove broccoli from oven and sprinkle with seeds. Serve hot as a side dish or over rice.
