Buffalo Style Roasted Broccoli
Here is a healthy option for that Buffalo wing craving. Ready in no time. Be sure to under cook the broccoli during the first round in the oven to ensure perfectly crisp but roasted florets.
- 1 large head broccoli, 4 or 5 cups, cut into bite-size florets
- Olive oil, to drizzle
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon melted butter, omit for vegan option
- ¼ to ⅓ cup Frank's Buffalo Wing Style hot sauce or other hot wing sauce of choice
- 1 gallon or larger size plastic bag
Preheat oven to 450F degrees.
Place 4-5 cups of bite sized broccoli florets into plastic bag. Drizzle olive oil to barely coat.
Add 2 teaspoons of garlic powder, ¼ teaspoon of salt and ⅛ teaspoon of pepper. Close bag and toss ingredients around so all florets are coated.
Place broccoli on an ungreased rimmed baking sheet. Bake on middle rack for 5 minutes.
Remove florets from oven when they're still very crisp. You will place them back in the oven for additional roasting after sauce is added, so you don't want to overcook them here.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a small bowl. Add ¼ to ⅓ cup of hot sauce to butter. Add broccoli to a medium bowl and drizzle hot sauce mixture over florets, but don't over coat them.
Return to oven and cook for additional 3-5 minutes.
Serve with any dip you like, ranch dressing or Blue Cheese dip.
