Garlic and Chili Roasted Broccoli with Feta and Pine Nuts

Roasted broccoli is one of my go-to side dishes at home and at work because it's always a crowd pleaser. And while delicious simply roasted with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, I figured why not jazz it up a bit with some feta, toasty pine nuts and chili pepper? If you want to keep this vegetarian, serve it with couscous or quinoa. If you want to pair it with meat, I recommend turkey burgers or pork tenderloin.




1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment or silpat and place broccoli, garlic and pine nuts on top. Drizzle with olive oil and season with crushed red pepper, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Roast for 12 minutes, stirring halfway through.


2. Transfer broccoli mixture to a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together. Drizzle over the broccoli and toss. Add the feta and raisins and toss again.



3. Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl or platter and garnish with more feta.
