Spicy Roasted Broccoli and Garlic

Pin It
If there's one thing in this world I couldn't live without, it would be garlic. Okay, well I definitely also couldn't live without my husband, son, family, friends, home, chapstick, toothbrush...well, I guess there's a lot of stuff. But I promise garlic is pretty high up there.
Roasted garlic takes some time to prepare, but it's really easy to do and can be used in numerous recipes. I decided to toss it with olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to dress up a side of broccoli, and it was incredible. The garlic gets double roasted and the little bit of spice takes it over the top. Such an awesome side dish. Enjoy!

In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Squeeze the roasted garlic out of the cloves and add to the bowl. Mash with a fork into the oil combination. Add broccoli and toss to coat.

Spread broccoli on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until tender.
