Quick Broccoli and No-Dairy Cheese
August 11, 2022
Broccoli may get a bad rap for being a boring and bland vegetable, but with a little roasting and our new No Dairy Cheddar Cheez-Style Sauce you can add delicious flavor to your plate.
Broccoli and Cheese Sauce
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Break crowns of broccoli into florets, then slice the florets in half vertically. Place the broccoli florets on a large baking sheet and toss with avocado oil, salt and pepper.
Roast the broccoli for 15 minutes. Flip broccoli and then roast for another 10 minutes or until tender.
Heat Primal Kitchen No Diary Cheddar Cheez-Style Sauce & pour over broccoli. Serve and enjoy!
What oven temperature should you use for roasted broccoli?
We roast broccoli at 375ºF. You can roast broccoli at 400ºF as well—the broccoli florets will cook faster at the higher temperature, and any smaller bits of broccoli can burn before any larger pieces finish roasting, so try to cut your florets into uniform pieces.
How long does it take to roast broccoli in the oven?
We roast the broccoli in this recipe in two stages:
- Roast for 15 minutes at 375ºF.
- Remove broccoli from the oven and toss with an extra tablespoon of nutritional yeast before putting back in the oven for 10 minutes.
Our recipe for roasted broccoli with cheese sauce takes 25 minutes total to cook in the oven.
