Oven Roasted broccoli is served with a sweet and spicy hoisin dipping sauce to create this gluten free and kid-friendly side dish.
During the cold winter months, I love roasting vegetables to create simple and nutritious side dishes. The oven adds a little extra warmth in the kitchen while allowing the natural sugars in the vegetables to caramelize.
Since you know I love keeping a well-stocked Asian pantry, I decided to throw together a simple hoisin dipping sauce to go alongside the broccoli. Sweet, sticky and slightly spicy, it is the perfect complement to the earthy, nutty flavor of the roasted broccoli.
If you don’t think your children like broccoli, I urge you to try this cooking method. The same thing goes for cauliflower, asparagus, Brussels, beets and more. As you can see, my Sous Chef couldn’t keep his paws off this dish!
