Welcome back to my blog, I hope that you are all doing well. I am not sure who else can relate but broccoli has never been my favorite vegetable(not even close) and I have always preferred to eat it raw. Recently though, I have really been loving the way roasted broccoli tastes because it still has the crunch and roasting it gives it the best flavor. I paired the broccoli with some avocado and a tahini lime dressing. It was nutty, had a beautiful crunch and was so delicious plus it is so easy to make! Keep reading for recipe!
