Roasted Broccoli with Sweet Chili Sauce

Broccoli is not easy to love for most people. It has a very strong flavor and smell that can be off-putting.

But! If you find the right ingredients to pair it with, you’ve got yourself something insanely healthy and delicious.

Like this roasted broccoli that my boyfriend loves so much, he just eats it on its own sometimes.

Give it a try, I’m sure you’ll want to make it again.
