Roasted Garlic Broco Tacos With Pork Recipe

I’m a big fan of the show Next Food Network Star. One of my favorite contestants this past season was Nikki Dinki. Not only does she have a cool name, but she’s also a food blogger. I was checking out her site one day, and found this great recipe for Broccoli Tacos. Her whole thing is “meat on the side”, but for me, I’m more of a meat at the center of the plate kind of girl. So, I adapted her recipe to both make it nightshade-free and make it fit better with my tastes. It turned out great! Roasted garlic is seriously my new favorite thing. And paired with the roasted broccoli – this meal has became one of the best I’ve ever made. Enjoy!

Roasted Garlic Broco Tacos With Pork Recipe Roasted Garlic Broco Tacos With Pork Recipe



1lb broccoli – fresh or frozen

7 cloves of garlic

1.5lbs ground pork

2 cups spinach

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon coriander

1 tablespoon oregano

½ tablespoon garlic powder

4 tablespoons melted ghee, butter, bacon fat, coconut oil, or olive oil

½ lime, juiced

optional – tomato, avocado, cheese, sour cream, tortillas, rice


Making It:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut the broccoli if you bought it fresh. If you bought it frozen I’m assuming it was already cut. Then peel the garlic.
  3. Put the broccoli and the garlic on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Drizzle 2 tablespoons ghee (or alternative oil) over all of it, then sprinkle on ½ tablespoon cumin, ½ tablespoon coriander, and ½ tablespoon oregano.
  4. Roast for about 30 minutes, or until browned.
  5. Cook the ground pork on the stove with ½ tablespoon cumin, ½ tablespoon coriander, ½ tablespoon oregano, ½ tablespoon garlic powder, and 2 tablespoons ghee (or alternative oil).
  6. Once the broccoli and garlic are done roasting, put them, along with the spinach, into a food process and process for a few seconds until slightly broken down and mixed together.
  7. Add the broccoli mixture to the ground pork mixture in the pan on the stove. Pour the lime juice over it and mix.
  8. Serve on tortillas, over a bed of lettuce, over rice, or on its own.
