What Is Chili Crunch?
Chili crunch is a condiment that’s typically made up of oil infused with dried peppers, crispy onion and garlic. Sometimes called chili crunch, chili oil or even chili sauce. I found mine at Trader Joes but Momofuko is another brand I would recommend.
Preheat your oven to 500°.
Lightly spray a metal, rimmed baking sheet with avocado oil. Add broccoli florets and lightly spray them as well. Season with a few pinches of kosher salt.
Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, measure and add 2 parmesan cheese, 2 tablespoons chili crunch and the juice of 1/2 a lemon.
Stir well to combine.
Meanwhile, roast the broccoli on the middle rack of your preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Rotate the pan halfway through for even roasting. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
Once roasted, immediately add to bowl with the parmesan and chili crunch mixture.
Toss well to combine.
Serve immediately with an extra drizzle or two of chili crunch over top.
