Add a punch of flavor to your keto meal with this roasted broccoli and bacon recipe. If you or your children are not fans of roasted broccoli, bacon will make it better.

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches of broccoli
  • 5 peeled cloves of garlic
  • 4 slices of bacon cut into bite-size pieces
  • a few good glugs of avocado oil, melted ghee, or melted lard
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. First things first: I cut up my broccoli into florets. No, I don’t normally wash ’em unless they’re really dirty, but I do inspect for bugs and I toss the florets that are super-infested. Organic broccoli often features small crowns and large stems so I normally trim the tough skins from the stems and throw them in as well.
  2. Then, I tossed the broccoli, bacon, and garlic cloves in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag to store in the fridge until I was ready to roast them.
  3. When it came time to roast off the broccoli, I preheated the oven to 400 F and added some fat in the Ziploc bag along with a generous amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper. I sealed the bag up and shook it vigorously, and then I dumped the contents on a foil-lined baking tray.
  4. Make sure it all fits in one layer or the broccoli won’t brown properly. I oven-roasted the broccoli for 30-35 minutes, rotating the tray and flipping the contents every 10 minutes or so.
  5. Really tasty. For variation, I think this dish tastes great with a bit of acid (a squeeze of lemon or a splash of your favorite vinegar) and/or a shower of microplane-grated parmesan cheese (if you tolerate dairy).
