Thai Roasted Broccoli

Thai Roasted Broccoli

This unusual Thai Roasted Broccoli was the brain child of my husband. Fresh Daddy has been getting more involved in the kitchen lately. One night he had his mind set on cooking broccoli in some new way we hadn’t tried before. And without a recipe, naturally. I was skeptical to say the least. He started combining things in a bowl to use as a marinade, with me peeking over his shoulder, muttering unhelpful things like, “Well that’s never gonna work!”

Well lo and behold, I was wrong – so wrong – because he came up with what’s become one of our favorite ways to eat broccoli. He marinated the broccoli with an almond-butter based sauce that has some Thai-inspired spices. And then baked it in the oven for just 20 minutes. This Thai Roasted Broccoli comes out with a crispy coating and a delightfully sweet/savory taste. It also happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and low FODMAP.

To keep this Thai Roasted Broccoil gluten-free, it’s important to use tamari in the marinade. But if you’re not eating gluten-free and you happen to have soy sauce on hand, that would be a fine substitute.

This is a side dish we often like to pair with my Sriracha Turkey Meatloaf for an all Asian, all spicy dinner. We hope you guys enjoy it as much as we have! Let me know in the comments.
