We are big fans of making our own “takeout.”
It’s cheaper, healthier and can be just as easy as going to pick something up.
And we love making Asian inspired takeout from Chicken Lo Mein to Grilled Nam Prik Shrimp Skewers.
No matter what Asian inspired entree we are making, this sriracha broccoli is the perfect side with its easy prep and bold blend of spicy flavor.
What is Sriracha?
Sriracha ia a hot sauce made from chili peppers, vinegar, garlic and salt. It’s more similar to chili sauce than it is to a hot sauce like Frank’s.
To make this you’ll need:
- Broccoli– Use whole heads that you trim into florets or save time by buying the bag of florets in the produce department.
- Soy sauce– To keep it gluten free, you can sub tamari. Liquid aminos can also be subbed.
- Sesame seed oil– Don’t have any? Substitute another light colored oil and sesame seeds.
- Sriracha– Adjust the amount to fit your spice preference.
- Minced garlic– Don’t sub garlic powder.
- Crushed peanuts– This is optional but we do love the little added crunch.
- Salt & pepper– To taste
How to Make
This roasted broccoli is so easy to make!
To do it, preheat the oven to 400°.
While the oven is heating, prep the broccoli by cutting it from the stalk into small florets. Make sure to wash and dry it well.
Then mix all the seasonings and diced garlic together in a large bowl.
Toss the broccoli in the mixture to coat it evenly.
Now, spread the seasoned broccoli onto a baking pan lined with foil or parchment paper.
Roast the broccoli for 15 minutes, tossing it once halfway through.
Serve with extra crushed peanuts on top!
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat by warming in the microwave until warmed through.
