Roasted Broccolini with Peanut Sauce

Roasted Broccolini with Peanut Sauce

One cold and rainy day on the @Foodtoktv channel: “Rainy Day Comfort Lunch” Live, I knew I needed something spicy and with a vegetable – so I went to a dish I made back in November, Roasted Broccolini with Peanut Sauce. This dish is inspired by Molly Yeh’s version. Along with it, I made my Bacon, Green onion, Cheddar and Walnut Muffins and Muscles, Potatoes and Bacon is perfect.


  • 2 bunches broccolini

  • 2 tablespoons bacon fat ( or you can use olive oil)

  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)

  • Pinch crushed red pepper

  • 2 tablespoons crushed peanuts

  • ¼ cup chopped roasted red pepper (drained)

  • Sriracha, for serving

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (or electric skillet to 250 degrees).

  2. For the oven:

    1. Lay out the broccolini on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil.

  3. For the Electric Skillet

    1. Add the bacon fat or olive oil. Add the broccolini to a cold skillet

    2. heat to 250 and cover.

  4. Roast until tender and beginning to brown, about 15 – 20 minutes. Rotate as needed

  5. Meanwhile, add peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic and crushed red pepper to a small bowl and whisk to combine. Add lime juice and lime zest to thin.

  6. Transfer the broccolini to a serving platter and drizzle with the sauce.

  7. Top with the roasted red pepper, crushed peanuts, sriracha and cilantro.

  8. Add an extra drizzle of sesame oil

  9. Serve with lime wedges.
