Broiled Broccoli

Ingredients:

  • broccoli
  • garlic
  • salt
  • pepper
  • red pepper flakes
  • thyme (if you have it fresh)

Directions:

Cut up however much broccoli you plan to eat and put it in a large zip lock bag. Add enough olive oil to lightly coat all the broccoli. You’ll need to experiment and figure out how much you personally like. Light olive oil makes it more crispy, heavier olive oil leads to it being softer. One trick I use to make this recipe easier is to use pre-chopped garlic stored in olive oil. Or you can chop your own. Add this to the bag too, along with the salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Toss in a little thyme too if you can get it fresh. Close the zip lock bag and toss it all around to mix the broccoli with the spices.

Spread aluminum foil over a cookie sheet (easier cleanup) and then dump the bag out over it. Put it at the top of the oven (broil) and cook for 10-15 minutes at 425 degrees or until they are lightly browned.
