It goes great with Asian food night. Some steamed rice. A nice simple stir fry. Some Asian tofu – oh and this sauce would be fabulous over your whole meal.
The sauce makes a little extra than you’ll probably need, so you have some extra to drizzle on your rice or on your protein.
Oranges are in season right now around my house. And you can see them hanging from the trees all around my neighborhood.
The oranges I used to make this recipe are from my lovely neighbor. She plucked them right off of her tree and was kind enough to share.
If you don’t have home-grown oranges to use, just use your favorite juicy kind of orange.
It won’t really matter if the orange is big or medium, as long as it’s fairly juicy. The sauce makes more than you need, so it all balances out in the end.
But, I do think that fresh oranges taste better than orange juice from a carton. So if you can, do take the extra minute to squeeze a fresh orange for this recipe.
Spice it up
Want your Honey Orange Sauce to have a little kick?
Stir in a squirt of Sriracha or chile-garlic paste. Or, sprinkle in some crushed red pepper flakes.
To make your life easier, make sure you spray the measuring cup that you’re going to use to measure out the honey with oil or non-stick spray before measuring.
Once it’s sprayed, the honey just slips right out of the measuring cup. No muss, no fuss. And you won’t even need to swipe it with a spatula.

Honey Orange Roasted Broccoli Recipe
Honey Orange Roasted Broccoli
- 2 heads broccoli
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Zest of 1 orange
- Juice of 1 orange
- ½ cup honey
- 2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- pinch salt
- Preheat oven to 425° F.
- Cut the broccoli into florets with 2 inches of stem, and toss with olive oil. Pour the coated broccoli out on a large baking sheet that’s been covered with parchment paper. Bake until tender crisp with some blackened edges, about 10 minutes.
- While the broccoli bakes, place the remaining ingredients (orange zest, orange juice, honey, soy sauce, garlic powder, and salt) in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, until thickened, about 2 minutes.
- Drizzle honey orange sauce over roasted broccoli, and serve hot.
