Roasted Broccoli with Vegan Garlic Parm is an easy side and a great addition to bowls. I often cover roasted veggies in this lively 5-Minute Garlic Hemp Seed Parm a.k.a. Garlic Shake. In this recipe the Vegan Garlic Parm is the Garlic Shake. I can't even remember what life was like before this garlic shake and I don't want to. Getting hooked on the garlic shake is good for you, mind, body, and spirit. There will be extra leftover garlic shake, you're welcome.
Toss the cut broccoli in oil until mostly coated. Place broccoli on two baking sheets so that the broccoli is spread out.
Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Bake for 15 minutes. Make the 5 Minute Garlic Hemp Seed Parm a.k.a. Garlic Shake while the broccoli is in the oven.
Remove the broccoli from the oven. Flip with spatula. Add more salt and pepper if desired, however the 5 Minute Garlic Hemp Seed Parm a.k.a. Garlic Shake adds some salt, so you my want to go easy on the salt.
Return broccoli to the oven and bake for 5 - 10 more minutes. The broccoli is ready when it is browned. We like ours almost burnt looking.
Set aside half of the hemp seeds, add all other ingredients to food processor and pulse until combined and sand-like.
Add the remainder of hemp seeds to the food processor and lightly pulse once or twice. You want to combine the hemp seeds but leave them whole to give it a varied texture.
Grab a pinch out of the food processor and taste. If you want it to be saltier or more garlicky, add more salt or garlic. If you want it to be less salty or garlicky, add more hemp seeds. Since this is a topping, my household likes it to be a hit of salt and garlic flavor.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
Shake generous amounts of the 5 Minute Garlic Hemp Seed Parm a.k.a. Garlic Shake over the oven roasted broccoli and enjoy. You will have leftover parm, store it in the fridge.
