Spicy Toasted Garlic Broccoli

ok… so I know you’re probably thinking “Broccoli???” and I would reply “YES!”, because its so dang good.  This has become my go-to side dish lately.  I recently went grocery shopping and STOCKED UP on broccoli and garlic, just so I could keep making this for like every meal.  Anyways, its super simple, and delicious which is why I decided to share it with all of you.

What You Need

  • 1 Large head of fresh broccoli
  • 3-4 cloves of fresh garlic (sliced)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Garlic Powder (optional)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • at least 2-4 Tbsp Un-refined Coconut Oil
  • pinch of Sea Salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • Sautee Pan

Cooking Directions

  1. chop up broccoli into bite sized chunks
  2. slice garlic
  3. heat enough oil to coat the pan over medium-high heat or a little extra
  4. toss in the broccoli and sautee for about a minute (evenly coating it with the oil) if it looks like the broccoli absorbed all the oil, add a couple more scoops
  5. add the seasonings (salt, red & black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder) and toss it to get coated
  6. add the sliced garlic and let it “fry” up with the broccoli for a few mins until garlic is toasted and broccoli has some “char” marks

In the picture you’ll see how it should look.  The broccoli will be slightly tender, but still have a nice firm crispness to it, but that flavor… OMG its so addictive.  Feel free to add more spice, and play it up to suit your taste.  I guarantee you it’ll be your new healthy side dish.  I’m even thinking of adding it in to the family thanksgiving menu!
