Sesame Roasted Broccoli

Hoping everyone returned back from a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend!   A day off?  Spring cleaning?   A trip to the cabin?  What was your weekend filled with?

Next time you are thinking of having bad Chinese take out, make Good Chinese Takeout instead.  As fast as it takes to get up and order food over the phone, you can prepare this healthy and delicious side dish and have it in the oven lickety split.  With this on your dinner guilt if you want that Banana Split after dinner, it won't cause spilt ends and will surely fight the battle in the splitting of your pants?! 

Broccoli is loaded in vitamin C, yet a much under appreciated vegetable of children.  It sometimes smells funny and looks like a tree.  As a kid I always loved the "leaves" but never liked eating the "trunk".  They both have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer activity within 5 minutes of biting into it.  Your body will feel so much better after eating this instead of sodium, additive and rancid oil loaded take-out.  Good enough reason for something that taste so good!

Print recipe here
1 - 1 ½ lb fresh broccoli florets {leaves} and stems {trunks} (thawed frozen broccoli works too)
1 T peanut oil
1 T tamari or soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
½ tsp garlic, minced
1 T sesame seeds, toasted

1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. Cut your broccoli into bite size pieces and place into a large bowl.  Drizzle broccoli with peanut oil, tamari, sesame oil and garlic.  Toss to coat and layer onto the lined baking tray.

3.  Place in the oven to roast 15-20 minutes until can be poked easily with a fork but not mushy.  It should be slightly browned.  Remove from oven and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.   Serves well with teriyaki flank steak, pork chops and grilled chicken.
