Preheat Oven 500°. Make sure rack is on the bottom, lowest position. Put a large non-stick baking sheet into the oven to preheat.
Take a couple of heads of Broccoli. Wash and peel outer stem (knife or veggie peeler).
Cut Head into Florets.
Cut Stalk into long strips, trying to cut a flat side to lay flat-side-down on hot baking sheet.
Toss Florets and Stalks with 2-3 Tablespoons EVOO to coat evenly.
Season with 1/2 tsp salt Pink Sea Salt and 1/2 tsp Sugar.
Rub it in, Rub it in!!!! (seriously, get int there with your hands and give the broccoli and little massage and make sure its all got a nice even coating)
Get out Baking Sheet, CAREFULLY! It should be super hot!
VERY QUICKLY transfer Broccoli to baking sheet making sure the flattest side is face down, touching the baking sheet.
Bake 6-10 mins. AS SOON AS TOP STARTS GETTING CRISPY LOOKING, IT IS DONE.
When you get it out the bottom should be blackened and top just crisp.
I left this one in a min too long….but it was still delish!!!
You can use tons of different veggies, and cook them the same way. Just don’t leave out the sugar!!! The sugar helps with the caramelization process. You can always simply change up the taste by experimenting with different ingredients.
Here are some ideas!
SUGAR SWITCH: Brown Sugar, Turbinado Sugar, Honey, Agave
SALT SWITCH: Table Salt, Lemon Salt, Sea Salt, Smoked Salt, Garlic Salt
FLAVOR BOOST: Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic Powder, Italian Seasoning, Cinnamon, Cayenne, WHOLE GARLIC CLOVES
Here are a few of my Favorite Oils to use!
