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!
- 1 (14 oz.) bag frozen broccoli florets, thawed
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 head roasted garlic (directions here)
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.
