Ever since I discovered that broccoli is amazing when baked, I haven’t prepared it any other way. My go-to recipe is just seasoned with salt and pepper, lemon juice, fresh basil, sliced garlic, and sometimes some parmesan. But this recipe from Sweet Beet and Green Bean is my favorite way to shake things up a bit.
Sweet Baked Broccoli
- about 1 lb broccoli florets
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp agave
- 3/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- Wash all the broccoli and shake dry. Cut off the florets, I like to leave a little bit of the stem but break everything into fairly small pieces. Then towel dry all the pieces to remove excess water.
- In a large bowl toss the broccoli florets well with the olive oil and agave, letting them seep into all the little crevasses. Then evenly mix in the salt, spices and sesame seeds.
- Bake at 400F for 20 minutes, then stir and bake for another 5-10 minutes, until the tops of the broccoli are all brown and crispy. Don’t let them cool too much before enjoying, they are most delicious when warm.
