An easy, tasty way to perk up basic broccoli.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 pound broccoli, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  3. Combine all the ingredients except the broccoli in a small bowl and whisk.
  4. Put the broccoli on the cookie sheet and pour the mixture over, tossing to be sure the broccoli is all coated.
  5. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until the broccoli starts to char just at the edges.


  • If you’re not a fan of anything spicy, you can leave out the pepper flakes. It will still be delicious!
