for the broccoli:

  • 1 large head of organic broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 Tbs. grass fed butter or ghee melted
  • 2 garlic cloves; chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. fine Celtic sea salt
  • 12-15 turns of freshly ground black pepper

for the aioli:


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC)

To make the broccoli:

  • Place florets in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Pour melted butter over and toss with your hands until broccoli is evenly coated. Add garlic to broccoli and toss together again. Season with salt & pepper.
  • Roast in the oven for approximately 15-20 minutes or until tender and edges are just starting to brown to your liking. I like my broccoli well-browned on the edges. 
  • Serve on a platter with the lemon garlic aioli for dipping. 

To make the lemon garlic aioli:

  •  Smash the garlic cloves and salt together in a mortar and pestle until it forms a paste. If you don't have a mortar and pestle mix it in a flat bottomed bowl flattening it with the back of a spoon until soft.
  • Add the salt & garlic mixture to a small bowl along with the remaining ingredients and whisk well until combined. Taste for seasonings and adjust to your preference.
