  • Preheat oven to 220* C (428* F) Fan.
  • Place an empty 30x35 cm non-stick roasting pan in the oven and allow it to get very hot.
  • Chop the broccoli into florets with a small knife and rinse under running water.
  • Peel the stems of each floret, removing its tough exterior.
  • Cut each floret it in half, lengthwise.
  • Peel the tough exterior of the main stem all the way around.
  • Cut into pieces that are 3-4 cm in length and 0.5 cm thick.
  • Place all of the pieces of broccoli into a bowl.
  • Add olive oil, salt, sugar, pepper and chili flakes. The sugar wil really help it caramelize and give it a delicious flavor!
  • Toss to coat.
  • When the oven and pan are hot enough, carefully remove the roasting pan from the oven and immediately spread the pieces of broccoli in the pan in a single layer.
  • Make sure you place them cut side down in the pan. This will help the broccoli cook faster.
  • You want to move quickly so the oven temperature doesn’t drop.
  • Roast for 10-15 minutes or until the broccoli is ready.
  • When ready, remove from oven and immediately transfer to a bowl. You don’t want the broccoli to continue cooking in the hot pan.
  • Drizzle with some tahini sauce and serve warm!
