Broccoli bagna cauda

This has easily turned into one of my fave veggie dishes. It’s so flavorful!! If you read the ingredients and are turned off by the anchovy component, I assure, if you give it a try you won’t be disappointed! I got this recipe from Nom Nom Paleo

  • 2 bunches of broccoli
  • 2 tbsp cooking fat of choice
  • 6 anchovy fillets (I just use anchovy paste and eye ball the amount)
  • 1/4 extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • zest and juice from 1 lemon (sometimes I use half a lemon) it can be over powering.

Preheat oven to 400. Wash and cut 2 bunches of broccoli. Toss with your choice of cooking fat and spread out in a single layer on foil covered sheet.

Roast in total for 30 minutes flipping half way. I usually set timer for 15-17 mins then toss and back in for same time. While broccoli is in the oven make the bagna cauda. Heat the olive oil and stir in the anchovies/paste until “melted” in (3-5 minutes). Then remove pan from heat and stir in the garlic and red pepper flakes.

Take the roasted broc out of the oven and transfer to a bowl.

Pour in the bagna cauda as well as the lemon zest and juice.

Yum I’ve never wanted to eat broccoli as much in my life! Try it 🙂   Amazing with steak & wine !
