06 Jan Roasted Balsamic-Honey Broccoli with Sautéed Onions & Garlic
I’m always looking for a new way to serve vegetable side dishes, to keep things interesting and fun for my family and guests. This broccoli dish is different, tangy and delicious. It will surely be enjoyed by all around your table! Like (almost) all of my recipes, it’s easy to prepare, tasty and healthy.
Roasted Balsamic-Honey Broccoli with Sautéed Onions & Garlic
Spread out 2 containers of fresh pre-checked broccoli florets on a foil cookie sheet.
In a small mixing bowl, or pyrex measuring cup, combine:
3 Tbsp. Zeta Basil & Garlic Flavored Olive Oil (See NOTE below)
1 Tbsp. (light tasting) olive oil
3 cubes frozen sautéed onions
2 cubes frozen garlic
1 1/2 Tbsp. good quality balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. low sodium soy sauce
Sprinkle black pepper
Pinch-dash crushed red pepper flakes (depending on how much heat you want)
Stir all together, allowing the frozen onion and garlic cubes to defrost (it doesn’t take more than 5 minutes).
Pour the dressing all over the broccoli, stirring to combine and coat the broccoli florets. Roast on 375* for about half-hour.
Note: I roast broccoli on 375*, which is a lower temperature than used for roasting foods such as root vegetables. However, I find the tips of the florets are more delicate and burn easily, so the lower oven temperature is a safer bet.
Note: Zeta Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a line of Israeli produced olives oils, with different flavor infusions. It is under the hechsher of Badatz, as well as the OU. It should be available in your kosher grocery. If you can’t get it, use regular olive oil instead (however, it’s definitely worth trying to find, for enhanced cooking flavors and salad dressings).
Happy cooking, b’tay’avon and enjoy!
