Roasted Broccoli with Balsamic Sesame Glaze

Straight up, this is an amazing way to have broccoli.  We LOVED it!  I made it to accompany the Bourbon Street Chicken.  Yum, yum, YUM!  Roasting veggies just gives them an entirely new layer of flavor.  I hear it does the same with Brussel Sprout...yet, I still can't go there...bleck!  
ANYWHO, I hope you enjoy this...I can't imagine a dish it wouldn't make an amazing Robin too (you know...Batman....Robin) except maybe ice cream.  Or Brownies.
Did I mention I have a wicked head cold right now.  It is either from kiddo cooties or sugar detoxing...not sure which.  It has made me a bit wonky though.  I need to go back to bed.
But, before I go...I thought I would share my most very favorite Broccoli song EVA! 
Choppin' Broccoli
Make this though.  Over and out.

Roasted Broccoli with Balsamic Sesame Glaze
Recipe Source:  the ever-fabulous Jaime from Jaime Cooks it Up.  Go visit her site, she has some amazingly scrumptious eats!
  • 1 pound broccoli
  • 1 1/2 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  • 1 TBSP toasted sesame seeds
Wash your broccoli and cut off the big stems. Spray a large cookie sheet with cookie spray and place the broccoli on it. Spray the top of the broccoli with cooking spray.
Put the cookie sheet in your oven at 425 for about 10 minutes, or until a fork can be inserted easily into the pretty little vegetable.
While your broccoli roasts away place 1 1/2 TBSP soy sauce, 1 TBSP olive oil, 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar, 2 TBSP honey
and 1 tsp peanut butter into a small sauce pan. Heat the sauce over medium high heat. When it boils, remove it from the heat.
When the broccoli is done, put it in a medium sized mixing bowl and pour the sauce over the top. Stir it all around, making sure each broccoli piece has sauce on it.
Sprinkle 1 TBSP toasted sesame seeds over the broccoli and serve.
