Ginger Sesame Roasted Broccoli

DSC_0872For me, simplicity is key when making side dishes. These Ginger Sesame Roasted Broccoli are as easy as it gets. A few standout ingredients go a long way to complement something as ordinary as broccoli.  

One of my favorite flavor combinations for broccoli, is garlic, ginger, and sesame all being roasted together to perfection.  If you think you don’t like broccoli, try roasting it and I can almost guarantee you’ll have a change of heart!  

Next up:  I’ll be trying this same recipe while roasting some baby bok choy.  Yum!

TIP: If you have a handheld grater like a Microplane, try grating your ginger and garlic to make a fine paste.  That way, there are no pieces larger than others, and it’s evenly distributed!
