3. Roasted Asian-Style Broccoli
Broccoli is the main attraction in this dish, but it's the magnificent marinade counterpart that truly brings it all together. It features the perfect balance of heat to sweet with a spicy blend of sambal oelek, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and a touch of sweetness from your choice of either brown sugar or agave, which pretty much seals the deal for a second helping. There is a reason the Swich community has loaded this one with 5-star ratings.
