Chili Boccoli

Almost two years ago, I posted a recipe for Roasted Broccoli that was a huge hit with my family and my readers.  A.J. and I tried a variation just to change it up a bit.

I'm a bit apprehensive about using a lot o chili powder in a dish, but the combination of spice blends turned out really good, and I recommend giving this a try.




Wash and cut one head of broccoli into florets.  You want short stems for this.





Chop up 6 cloves of garlic.


In a bowl big enough to hold your broccoli, plus a little tossing room, add 1 tablespoon of McCormick's Montreal Grill Seasoning.



Then add 1 tablespoon of chili powder and the chopped garlic.  Combine the seasonings and garlic, 



Add in the washed broccoli and drizzle with about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of olive oil.  Toss with your hands to evenly coat the florets with the olive oil and the seasonings.  Evenly place on a prepared foil lined baking sheet.  Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.



Roasting the broccoli gave it a nutty flavor and combined with the grill seasoning and chili powder; it really rocked!  Even the broccoli nay-sayers will devour these!

You know that the roasted broccoli was and is one of my favorite ways to eat broccoli since you first gave us this recipe. This new twist should be even better!

Broccoli is my favorite veggie and I eat it almost everyday, but I have never tried roasting it. This recipe looks great and I will definitely try it!

You rock the broc' !

I like this spicy roasted broccoli, Katherine. If I had a few left over pieces, they'd go great on top of a baked potato.

That is quite a bit of garlic. But it sounds like another keeper!
