After the rich, decadent truffles I shared the other day, I thought I would lighten things up a bit today with this chili roasted broccoli. It’s spicy. It’s tender with crispy edges. It pairs well with a variety of dishes and would even work well tossed into a stir fry. And if all that isn’t enough, it is also beyond easy to make.
We love broccoli in our house. We usually eat it once, if not twice, a week. Being that we eat it so much, I’m always looking for new ways to try it. Well a few months back we had dinner at a friend’s house and they roasted broccoli for us. I had never had roasted broccoli before and it was delicious. It was tender but it had little crispy edges. I loved it, Ryan loved it and Kellan even loved it. Ever since then I’ve been roasting my broccoli and I don’t see myself settling for plain ol’ steamed broccoli again.

Crispy, baked, chicken taquitos with a cream green chile sauce.
A silky smooth vanilla bean cheesecake topped with a sweet blueberry sauce with just a hint of lemon.
My favorite way to enjoy an artichoke, simply roasted with a creamy roasted garlic dip.
Chicken wings marinated in creamy greek yogurt dill sauce and baked until golden brown and crispy.
A salty, sweet snack with popcorn, M&M’s, pretzels, white chocolate and a sprinkle of sea salt.
