Ingredients Needed for Asian Inspired Roasted Broccoli with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Broccoli – You’ll need three bunches of broccoli for this recipe. Simply trim the ends, leaving the stem intact. Slice the broccoli into long strips. Place the cleaned and trimmed broccoli on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. For best results, do not overcrowd the pan. Also, you may need to reduce the cooking time if you’re only using the broccoli heads and not the full stem.

Spicy Peanut Sauce – Combine creamy peanut butter, low sodium soy sauce, sriracha, maple syrup, rice vinegar and warm water. Still well. For a thinner sauce add a touch more warm water.

Toppings – Top this dish with chopped scallions, sesame seeds, crushed peanuts, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Serve with extra lime wedges.

How to Make Asian Inspired Roasted Broccoli with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set it aside.

Clean and trim your broccoli leaving the stems intact. Slice the broccoli into long strips.

Add the broccoli to the prepared baking tray and drizzle it with olive oil, salt and cracked black pepper.

Roast for 25-30 minutes or until the broccoli is lightly charred and tender. I like my broccoli slightly firm and crispy, so I roasted mine for 25ish minutes.

While the broccoli is roasting, combine the spicy peanut sauce. Which includes, creamy peanut butter, maple syrup, sriracha, low sodium soy sauce, rice vinegar and warm water. Mix until well combined.

Remove the broccoli form the oven and top it with the spicy peanut sauce, sesame seeds, chopped scallions and crushed peanuts. Add a squeeze of fresh lime and serve with extra lime wedges. Enjoy.

Storage

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for two to three days. Store the spicy peanut sauce separately if possible. Warm in the microwave when reheating.
