Print Roast Calabrese broccoli with garlic and chilli

This light and super-easy side is a great weeknight fall back. The chilli and garlic give traditional roast broccoli an extra zing. Watch the stalks carefully – they should be just tender and slightly coloured.


  • 350g Calabrese (broccoli), broken into florets, stalks cut into thick batons
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped
  • ½ tbsp sesame seeds (optional)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Toss the broccoli in the oil, spread it out on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Add the garlic, chilli and sesame seeds, if using, and mix through.
  2. Return to the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle immediately with the soy sauce and serve.
