Ingredients

2 large heads of organic broccoli, washed and dried thoroughly, cut into florets
4 cloves organic garlic, chopped or minced
5 tablespoons good quality olive oil
3 tablespoons coconut vinegar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons sea salt
Cracked black pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large mixing bowl, add broccoli florets and set aside. In a small bowl, add garlic, oil, vinegar, maple syrup, sea salt and pepper, and whisk for 1-2 minutes to incorporate all ingredients. Pour this mixture onto broccoli and toss to coat evenly.

On a large cookie sheet, spread broccoli evenly throughout, making sure not to overlap pieces. Roast in oven for 30 minutes, or until slightly browned and a bit crispy. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
