Quick Roasted Broccoli with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds
1 lb. fresh broccoli florets
1 1/2 T olive oil
1 T soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 T sesame seeds, toasted
Preheat oven to 450F/220C. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray. (Use the biggest baking sheet you have.)
Whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce or coconut aminos and sesame oil. Place broccoli in a mixing bowl and toss well. Arrange the broccoli in a single layer on baking sheet. Make sure any flat sides are touching the baking sheet for the best browning.
Roast 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, stir or turn broccoli pieces over and then continue roasting 5 minutes more, or until broccoli is tender-crisp and slightly browned on the edges. (The step of turning it over is only to get more even browning; you can roast it without turning if you prefer.)
While broccoli roasts, toast sesame seeds in a dry pan over very high heat for 30-60 seconds. When broccoli is done, arrange on serving dish and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve hot.
