Ginger Roasted Broccoli

We are a mostly main dish family, meaning I generally don't do side dishes during the week. If I do, it is usually a salad made out of spinach or some sort of roasted vegetable because I love roasted vegetables!

Ginger Roasted Broccoli is flavorful and easy to put together. Just toss the broccoli with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, cracked pepper, and freshly grated ginger and roast in the oven for 25 minutes. It is a recipe that is hard to mess up, and easy to devour. Roasting the broccoli gives it a slightly smokey flavor, and it stays a little crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. I like to sprinkle it with a little more grated ginger and some lemon juice after it bakes to brighten the flavor. 

It'll work as the perfect accompaniment to chicken, or turkey dinner. So simple. So worth trying. So silly write down such an easy recipe, but here you go!

Ginger Roasted Broccoli

  • 5 cups fresh broccoli, chopped slightly
  • 2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • cracked pepper to taste
  • olive oil, about 4 tbs
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spread broccoli onto a cookie sheet.
  2. Pour olive oil onto broccoli. Add ginger, garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss to evenly distribute. (At this point the broccoli already tastes really good, if you're into snitching bites.)
  3. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender. 
  4. Toss with a little lemon juice and more grated ginger. Serve immediately.

Bake the bread. Share the slices.
