This side dish is literally exploding with flavor and it is so healthy, too! Whenever Wesley and I are trying to count our calories, this is one of our favorite dishes to make. Even when we’re not counting calories!
ROASTED BROCCOLI IS EXTREMELY EASY TO MAKE
We love getting fresh broccoli and coring it and then cutting into bite size pieces. We love broccoli because it’s just so delicious in so many dishes, like our Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche, but it’s also super healthy, too. Read more about that here, if you’re interested.
But nowadays, many well-stock supermarkets sell pre-cut broccoli in the produce section. We wouldn’t recommend going with the frozen variety, but you could in a pinch. If you do, make sure its completely frozen.
The other key ingredient for this awesome dish if chili paste. This product can usually be found in the condiment section of your grocery story, near the ketchups.
Roasted Broccoli with a Kick! This is fantastic. And so quick and easy. It’s healthy, it’s gluten-free, and it has a nice spice that when you pop these into your mouth…you’ll say: “oh yes!!” You can find the red chili paste in the Asian section of your local super market. Adjust the heat to your liking. Super easy and super good! Roasted broccoli with a kick!
ROAST FOR ONLY 15 MINUTES
After you’ve tossed everything together, so the broccoli is nicely coated, simply add to a baking dish.
During this time, make sure you’ve pre-heated your oven to 425°F.
The perfect side dish.
We just can’t rave enough how delicious this Roasted Broccoli with a Kick is. If you want more heat, double up on the chili paste! So good!
