Seriously, people are so mean to broccoli.
It’s probably because they grew up like me being served boiled, over-cooked, blah blah blah broccoli. Really, in this day and age you would think it would be more popular being low carb, low fat, and only 31 calories per cup. Broccoli is also high in fibre and many nutrients, notably vitamin C, vitamin K, iron and potassium. This vegetable also contains more protein than most other vegetables.
I will admit, I was well into my twenties before I began to appreciate the awesomeness that is this cruciferous vegetable but I am trying to do my children a favour and get them hooked on this great veg early in life. Enter Sriracha Baked Broccoli.
Sriracha Baked Broccoli:
I don’t even have words for how yummy Sriracha Baked Broccoli is. The dish delicious, healthy, and so incredibly quick and easy to make! The best part of baked broccoli is, while this particular recipe includes sriracha, you can change up the seasonings to constantly be creating a new baked dish each time.
What is so wonderful about this broccoli dish, is that it is incredibly quick and easy to whip up. Firstly, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Wash and chop your broccoli and place into a medium sized bowl. Add up to a tbsp of olive oil (less if your head of broccoli is on the smaller side), 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of onion salt (or omit the salt altogether), and 1 tbsp of Sriracha.
Toss the ingredients ensuring the broccoli is evenly coated, and spread on a baking sheet.
You’re welcome. I literally just introduced you to your new favourite thing. You’ll love it, the kids will love it, and your friends will thank you for bringing it into their lives.
