  • 1 head of broccoli*
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional: 2 tablespoon melted butter

For the aioli:

  • 1/2 cup mayo**
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • Slice broccoli vertically, with the stem facing up. It's ok if it doesn't slice perfectly--I was able to get two full broccoli "steaks" and then the rest were just broccoli florets.
  • Place the broccoli on a baking sheet and then drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. If you want, you can also drizzle some melted butter or ghee overtop.
  • Roast broccoli in the oven for 15-25 minutes, or until broccoli is golden brown on the edges.
  • While broccoli is cooking, make the aioli. First, scoop mayo into a dish and set aside.
  • Next, heat oil in a skillet and add the minced garlic. Cook garlic until right before it starts turning golden brown, and pour garlic and oil into the dish with the mayo; stir.
  • Add lemon juice, salt and pepper to the mayo and stir to combine, adding additional salt and pepper to taste.
  • Eat broccoli with a fork and knife, dip in the aioli and enjoy!


*Feel free to use 2 heads of broccoli if you want the broccoli to look like steaks. I personally think it's tricky to slice, and was only able to get two full broccoli "steaks" out of one head of broccoli.
**For vegan option, use vegan mayo.
