Crispy Oven Fried Broccoli

I am a big fan of fried cauliflower, so I thought why not try broccoli as well!  However, I like to make it healthier than frying it in a bunch of oil, so I bake mine instead and it still comes out nice and crispy!  I serve it here with a lemon tahini dipping sauce and it is so delicious!  Not only that, you get your daily fiber and a satisfying snack all in one!
