Nutty Broccoli, with a Mustard Kick

Vibrant greens with a little punch and a sweet crunch. Nutty Broccoli is one of those sides that looks and tastes amazing with a simple meal or as part of a banquet table. I love to put this out for the family at Thanksgiving, Christmas or just on a weekday evening. I enjoy broccoli with some bite to it, so don’t overdo the steaming/boiling of the florets at the start, plus the green color when its cooked just right really brightens up any dish.

Almond butter chocolate cups!  YUM!

If you’d like to add a little kick, then 1 tsp of cayenne pepper goes really well in this dish, but does mean it wouldn’t be nightshade free
