A delicious and rich alternative to bland steamed broccoli! It caramelizes perfectly, and the spices give it a great flavor that kids and parents will love.

Great simple recipe! I followed the recipe pretty exactly though I eyed the spices no measuring. Tastes great! Super simple! I'm vegan... next time I will throw in some chick peas and serve this over rice... perfect meal!

I followed the reciped verbatim. The cayenne was way too overpowering and the spice combination was "off". The broccoli had a weird tangy way too spicy sweet kind of taste and they did not caramelize at all. I won't be trying this again.

I tried this recipe as written. The spice combination was a bit strong. I expected it to have a sweet but spicie kick. The cayenne pepper over powered all the brown sugar and other spices. Might try it again with a little less cayenne pepper. I also think the blend was a too thin in consistancy to properly coat the broccoli for effective carmaization. Less lemon juice and olive oil might correct this problem.

I followed another review and added chick peas over rice. Also added roasted red peppers chopped and mixed in the broccoli. I like the added spices but think I would leave the oregano out next time. I think the spices competed but all in all turned out to be a great meal with a side spinach salad with pear and almond slivers.

I liked this.. I used 24 ounces of broccoli mixed all the dry ingredients sprinkled the broccoli with the lemon juice and 1T of oil ( which was plenty) and then sprinkled with the seasoning mix tossed and baked. I think I baked a bit longer because I like the browned edges of the broccoli.

This was really good and super easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly and the spices were a little strong for me. But my non-vegetable eating fiance asked for more. Next time it will try it with out the oregano and thyme.

Loved this! Cut cayenne oregano & thyme to 1/4 teaspoon -- also did as other reviewer drizzled with olive oil & lemon first tossed then mixed all dry ingredients at measurement indicated sprinkled on top then cooked. It was fabulous!

Sweet but good. I mixed with roasted potatoes and chickpeas--the three complimented each other nicely.

This recipe was great although I made it without the oregano used chili pepper instead of cayenne and no lemon juice. Delicious!
