Spicy Broccoli

Sriracha is one of the most wonderous tasting hot sauces out there. In fact, I'm confident that with the right mix of Sriracha, Franks Red Hot, and Old Bay Seasoning you could make anything edible. ANYTHING!

Anywho...I actually enjoy broccoli. One of my favorite meals is to steam a bag of broccoli and then squeeze the juice of a lemon on it. It's simple, it's tasty, and you can have it while traveling without too much hassle.

But a few weeks ago my girlfriend (who will be called Lady Alpha from here on out) made the most wonderous of wonderous dishes I have ever tasted. Enter Spicy Broccoli...



-2 tablespoons Sriracha Chile Garlic Sauce (this stuff is hot, so play around with the amount)

-2 cloves garlic, minced

-1-2 tablespoons minced ginger

-1/4 cup Soy Sauce

-1/4 cup Olive Oil


-Pre heat oven to 375

Mix everything but the broccoli in a bowl. The Sriracha and the garlic will sink to the bottom, so don't worry too much about making it a uniform texture.

Put the broccoli in a baking dish and then drizzle the sauce over it while stirring to keep the Sriracha/garlic bits from staying at the bottom. Shake the dish to coat as much of the broccoli as you can.

This won't make enough to completely cover all the broccoli, but that's ok. Once or twice while it's cooking just pull it out of the oven and give a good toss.

Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on how soft you like your broccoli. I like it still pretty hard, so 20-23 minutes is all I do.

It doesn't look much different, but the taste is out of this world.
