Recipe Testers' Reviews
My sister said it best—it's like Chinese takeout broccoli only way better! This roasted broccoli was a big hit at dinner and it was so easy! I loved the classic combo of ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. The butter gave it all just a touch of velvetiness.
I did a little extra roasting to get more color on my broccoli, which is how I like it best. I'll be making this again but I'll be making a double batch! I think it would serve 6 as a side item when I don't take into account all the shameless nibbling off the pan I did.
You know you've found a winning broccoli recipe when the kids ask for seconds! This was a great way to cook broccoli—the roasted broccoli was tender but not limp and the soy butter was a simple and delicious way to dress up an everyday side.
