Hot and Sweet Roasted Broccoli

Serves 4.

Note: From "Homemade With Honey," by Sue Doeden.

• 1 1/4 lb. broccoli, cut into florets

• 5 tbsp. olive oil, divided

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

• 1 tbsp. honey

• 4 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 to 1 tsp. red pepper flakes, crushed


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In large bowl, toss broccoli florets with 3 tablespoons olive oil. Arrange broccoli in a single layer on a rimmed baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes. While broccoli is baking, mix remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil with honey, garlic and red pepper flakes.

After 10 minutes in oven, drizzle broccoli with oil and honey mixture. Stir to coat the broccoli. Continue baking for another 10 minutes. Broccoli should be browned and caramelized. Season to taste with more salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
