Thai Roasted Broccoli

Raw broccoli with Thai marinade

This unusual side dish was the brain child of my husband, Fresh Daddy. He’s been getting more involved in the kitchen lately, and one night he had his mind set on cooking broccoli in some new way we hadn’t had before. And without a recipe, naturally. He started combining things in a bowl to use as a marinade, with me peeking over his shoulder, probably 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. It’s marinated with an almond-butter based sauce that has some Thai-inspired spices. It gets baked in the oven for just 20 minutes, and comes out with a crispy coating and a delightfully sweet/savory taste. We hope you guys enjoy it as much as we have!
