Man Broccoli

The other night I arrived home to a delicious home cooked meal prepared by my fiance. Wes was particularly proud of his broccoli and the manner in which he seasoned it. This is MAN broccoli. Wes has recently been bragging that he is good with seasoning and flavoring… and this broccoli delivers.

12 hour work day ended with a healthy home cooked meal by fiance!

  • Drizzle olive oil and soy sauce over broccoli
  • Add garlic salt and onion powder, and toss with a spatula to cover evenly

Yummy, flavorful roasted broccoli!

Wes actually used a blood orange infused olive oil to give the broccoli it’s orange flavor, but you can easily substitute fresh squeezed orange or a splash of orange juice. The orange flavor is a nice surprise, and this broccoli pairs nicely with chicken.

I am just happy I have this boy trained to cook vegetables, and he ENJOYS this broccoli! Let us know if you try this recipe out!

One thought on “Man Broccoli

  1. Love that little taste of orange! When I do broccoli, I cut the florets and place them in a large zip lock bag. Then I add fresh garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and fresh squeezed lemon. I shake it up in the bag for over all coverage and then bake until the ends start getting a little crispy. Sooooo good!
