Perfect paired with grilled chicken, steak or other favorite protein food, this Low Fodmap Spicy Roasted Broccoli recipe is an easy side dish and a great way to get your greens.
My go-to method of cooking most veggies is roasting. I love how roasting brings out the natural sweetness of veggies, helps cut some of the bitterness and adds a crispy texture. And, this Low Fodmap Spicy Roasted Broccoli is one of my favorite roasted veggie recipes. It’s a little spicy (red pepper flakes), a little sweet (tamari) and all kinds of crunchy!
Fodmap Fact: When it comes to broccoli, portion size matters. If you’re on the experimentation phase (aka elimination), stick to 1 cup servings or less of broccoli in a sitting. Larger servings contain excess fructose which may trigger symptoms in some individuals.

- ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes (or to taste)
