Roasted Broccoli with Ginger Soy Sauce

roasted broccoli

Roasted broccoli is made more interesting with addition of ginger soy sauce. And, it’s a no fuss way to incorporate vegetables into your meals!

Because you line a cookie sheet with foil, this side dish also means no clean up, which is a big plus in my household.

Broccoli is a highly nutritious vegetable: providing fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, and potassium. It also boasts more protein than most other vegetables.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 12 minutes

  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs ginger paste
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp each, salt & pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes
cooking instructions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Cut florets to about 1″; uniformity is important to ensure even cooking
  • Mix soy sauce, ginger paste and chili flakes in a small bowl; set aside
  • Line a cookie sheet with aluminium foil
  • Toss florets with olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Spread florets onto cookie sheet and place in hot oven for about 12 minutes, until fork tender
  • Remove broccoli from cookie sheet and place on serving platter; drizzle sauce and serve hot

Note: you can substitute roasted green beans for the roasted broccoli, if desired. If you want to buy a whole head of broccoli and use the stem as well as the florets, simply trim off the little side leaves and slice into 1/4″ coins. The stem will add additional texture.
