Does your loved one have a favourite ingredient that they love you to make into a recipe for them? Mr B’s is broccoli (as well as chocolate… but we won’t even attempt to put those two together!) This week he’s been super tired so I wanted to spoil him with something broccoli themed. And so came about this delicious Roasted Broccolini With Ginger and Lime.
Personally I can’t get excited about broccoli boiled, just boring! But when you roast it so its beautiful flowery heads go all crispy and then smother in a tangy sesame, ginger and lime dressing I somehow fall madly in love… again. Don’t worry Mr B, there’s enough love in this heart for the two of you!
Benefits of Broccoli
Broccoli is a nutrition powerhouse. Full of antioxidants, fibre and is said to help decrease the risk of diseases like cancer. It’s a wonderful vegetable to pack into your diet, and low in net carbs if you’re following a Keto, Paleo or low carb diet.
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as Mr B and I did. If you’re following a gut healing protocol right now like Autoimmune Paleo, simply leave out the nuts and replace the sesame oil with olive oil for an AIP alternative. Option to activate the nuts (soak in water for 12 hours) and then roast to remove the phytic acid which makes them more digestible.
