Roasted Broccoli with Asian Soy Glaze

Make even the pickiest eater a broccoli fan by roasting it into a crispy, nutty-flavored treat. A simple soy-mirin glaze gives it a great garlicky punch.

Prep Time:  10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 Servings


  • 1 large head broccoli (1 ¾ lbs)
  • 1 TB extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TB low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 TB mirin
  • 1 tsp minced fresh garlic
  • 1 TB toasted sesame seeds


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut broccoli into bite sized florets. Trim stalk and slice into ¼” thick disks. Toss broccoli with olive oil and spread across sheet pan. Roast in oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. While broccoli roasts, whisk together soy sauce, mirin, and garlic in a small bowl. Drizzle over cooked broccoli and garnish with sesame seeds.


This recipe can easily be doubled. Just be sure to spread the other head of broccoli across a 2nd sheet pan and switch pan positions halfway through cooking time.
