Did you know that broccolini is good for your heart both physically and mentally? It’s an anti-inflammatory that keeps blood vessels strong while also being a good source of mood-boosting vitamin B.

Get in your greens in a new, tasty way by roasting your broccolini. The fresh garlic adds a sweet, nutty flavor while the pepper adds heat. It's a simple side dish your guests will love. Serve with my goat cheese and spinach stuffed chicken with savory mushroom sauce for a complete meal!


  • 2 lbs broccolini, trim 2 inches off stalks

  • ¼ c olive oil

  • 1 t kosher salt

  • ¼ t ground black pepper

  • ½ t crushed red pepper

  • 3 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together olive oil, salt and both peppers in a large mixing bowl. Add trimmed broccolini and mix together until all stalks are coated. Spread out evenly on a baking sheet. Roast uncovered for 20 minutes. Serves 6-8.

TIP: You can prepare this dish up to the roasting point prior to guests arriving. Roast just before to serving.
