INGREDIENTS
  • 2 medium heads broccoli, diced into approx. 1 1/2" florets (approx.10 cups) *
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 packed tablespoon lime zest (approx 2 medium limes)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (approx 1 medium lime)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (sub 1 tablespoon olive oil)
  • 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • Optional: 1/3 cup roasted salted pistachios for garnish
DIRECTIONS
  1. *NOTE: I include the top 2” of the broccoli stem and chop it into the same sized pieces. It’s tender and delicious! TIP: always zest your limes/lemons before squeezing for juice!
  2. Make sure oven racks are situated in the middle. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with nonstick parchment paper. Alternately, Silpats work in place of parchment.
  3. To a large mixing bowl, add broccoli florets, avocado oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then spread in even layers over the baking sheets. Roast broccoli for 23-27 minutes, until tender and golden brown around the edges.
  4. While broccoli is roasting, whisk all remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. As soon as broccoli comes out of the oven, drizzle each baking sheet with half of the lime mixture and use a spatula or spoon to evenly coat. Taste for salt and add accordingly, then serve immediately with pistachios, if using!
  5. Leftover broccoli will keep tightly sealed in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
