Pardon my pimping my debut novel but I am SO EXCITED! It is HILARIOUS & raunchy & a total guilty pleasure. I hope you will check it out!
Meanwhile, a gal still has to eat. Last night, I made this delicious roasted broccoli. It came out a tad overcooked for my taste but I am having oven issues & cannot really be sure whether the cooking was a result of my oven being hotter than I thought or maybe my timing was off. I will recommend only that you check yours as it cooks to avoid overcooking.
Roasted Sesame Garlic Broccoli
1 head broccoli – cut into florets (cut the florets in half for even faster cooking)
4 garlic cloves – minced
1 TBS olive oil
1 TBS soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
Sesame seeds – toasted until fragrant in a dry pan (maybe 1-2 minutes) – optional as garnish
Heat the oven to 450.
Prepare a cooking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment.
Whisk the olive oil, sesame oil, soy sauce & crushed red pepper together. Toss the broccoli in this until it is well coated. Arrange on the cooking sheet & roast for 5 minutes. Remove it from the oven & toss in the garlic. Roast another 5 minutes & test to see if the broccoli is done. If not – not more than another 5 minutes should do it.
Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds & enjoy while ordering a copy of my book! 🙂
