Roasted Broccoli with Sriracha, Honey, and Soy Sauce


This recipe is really, really easy.

This isn’t one of those awful recipes that makes a lot of promises (It only takes 15 minutes! It will look perfect! Everyone in your life will love you forever if you make this for them!), but then fails to live up to said promises (It actually took two hours! And it looks/tastes like cat food! Everyone hates me!).

No, this isn’t one of those recipes (I’m looking at you, Martha).

I will not promise you the moon. Instead, I will make very realistic promises about this dish.

This dish can be prepared in under two hours (realistically, it should take 15 minutes).

This dish will taste good (as long as you like the taste of broccoli and as long as you don’t add so much Sriracha that your tongue burns off).

These are the promises that I’m prepared to make at this time.

In all seriousness, if you like broccoli you should make this. I invented this recipe one night, in a desperate attempt to quell my hunger after a long workout at the gym. I came home and was disappointed to find a rather empty fridge: I had raw broccoli and some leftover brown rice. I was tired, sore, and cranky – but somehow I managed to throw together this dish. I’m so glad that I did. This is now my new favorite side dish/main course/work lunch/ mid-day snack. I’ve made this broccoli 3 times in the past week and a half. I’m slightly obsessed.

So, I felt that I had to share it with you all.

Roasted Broccoli with Sriracha, Honey, and Soy

1 small crown of broccoli, cut into bite size florets
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Sriracha
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup slivered almonds
4 green onions, sliced thinly
Optional: Red chili flakes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil or a Silpat.

In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, Sriacha and black pepper. Pour mixture over the raw broccoli and toss to coat.

Spread broccoli pieces in an even layer across the baking sheet. Roast for 8-10 minutes, until broccoli is tender (and the outer edges are beginning to turn dark brown).

Remove broccoli from the baking sheet to a bowl. Toss with almond slivers, green onions. Taste and adjusting seasonings if necessary. Serve immediately. (I like to eat it atop brown rice with a little extra soy sauce…)

    It’s pathetic, I know, but I just bought my first bottle of sriracha and instantly fell in love. I adore roasted broccoli and always make it the same way, so I am thrilled to give this recipe a try. The flavor profile sounds delicious!

  2. WHAT! This looks sooo good. But, what’s more, you new redesign is smokin’ hot- like sriracha itself. Love.

  3. YUM! I love adding a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes to my broccoli– it seems to really love spice. And I love sriracha, so this seems like a match made in heaven! Thank goodness for your cranky post-workout kitchen fit. :)

    I just had this broccoli over brown rice/quinoa blend for lunch… my husband licked any leftover sauce off the plate. It is that great! We’ll be going back to this one again and again.

    I love your website and the name is just darling. I pinned the Tomato Basil soup recipe from Chef Dennis and plan to use it very soon: it looks devine. I also want to try the broccoli recipe this week. I didn’t know what Sriracha was, but I’m happy to learn something new! Keep up the good work. You’re blog is wonderful.

    Love, love, love that sauce. Made it the moment I finished your blog. Going to make the sauce again and use it as a stir fry with tofu and vegetables. Delish. Bought a bottle of Sriracha ages ago and never used it. Now I’m in love with it (and your sauce). Thank you for a great recipe.

    I love broccoli! No, seriously, i pickle the stems i love it so much. (think sweet pickle slices)

    This not only sounds awesome for broccoli, but it kinda seems like a veggie version of buffalo wings. Which just makes it even more popular!

    Just made this and it was delicious! I didn’t have soy sauce but used some teriyaki as a substitute. I also chopped up some garlic and threw it in the mix! My taste buds are happy after eating this! Ok, and I’ll admit, I was sweating a bit after adding some crushed red pepper, ubut it’s all good :) Thanks for the great recipe!

  18. Mary says:

  24. A very veggie recipe:) can we add more vegetables to this recipe? If so what are the vegetables we can add? You reply is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the same.

  25. I had a lot of Sriracha left and was searching for some new recipe to try with it. I was getting bored with the same old ones. I found this interesting recipe and am going to try it out very soon. Keep uploading unique recipes like this one.

    Recently I turned vegetarian , thanks to my partner and am trying out new recipes. As I haven’t cooked a lot of veggie recipes, I am not familiar with many of them. I found your blog while searching the net. Am going to try this recipes shortly.

  29. Very delicious recipe. I love the way you have presented the recipe. I had bought sriacha honey for some other recipe and was just wondering if I could use it for any other recipe also. I think I found the apt one:)

  30. Mia says:

    I love broccoli and add it to almost all the dishes I prepare. But I haven’t tried anything like this recipe. This is something different I am reading for the first time. I do use sriracha honey for other recipes, but never knew broccoli and sriracha would get along well.

  31. ross andrea says:

    I love Sriacha honey. I love its taste. I have a lot at home and try to add it for any recipe in which it will go well along. Now this is one more new recipe for me to satisfy my taste buds:) Love you for sharing this.
