This roasted broccoli is dressed with a spicy, Asian dressing to give a kick to your next meal. A healthy, quick and easy side dish.
I bet you’re still wondering what my healthy ice cream story is aren’t you?
Or, if this is your first time here, you’re wondering what the heck I am talking about.
And THEN…I didn’t share it with you.
Because I am mean.
AND because I knew you would keep checking until I finally shared it, which means you’ll keep reading and coming back. SMART.
Side note: Just let me live in my own little world where readers will come back for YEARS in anticipation of ice cream stories, because yall just care about my REALZ LYFE THAT much.
But, I didn’t make you wait years. I would forget about it in that span of time.
So. My story. It begins like about 90% of my stories begin:
We were at IHOP. If you follow my Instagram, you will know that we, without exaggeration, go there EVERY.SINGLE.WEEK.
What can I say? I am a gluten free pancake FIEND.
But, on this particular day, my taste bud-u-lar devices also wanted ice-cream…but, Mr. FFF said that any kind of ice cream or frozen yogurt recipe was not acceptable for a meal. (Who is he?)
So, you know how you solve that problem? Eat both.
Back to back.
And then proceed to lay on the couch for all the evers wondering how long it is until you explode, and exactly how should you spend your last few minutes on the earth?
But, that’s a different story.
So. We went to McDonalds because, let’s be REALZ, their soft serve cones are off the McHeezy.
There we were, anxiously awaiting our number to be called so we could face plant into creamy, vanilla swirls of glory, followed by a lightly sweet, but OH SO satisfying crunchy-nums.
They called us. We walked up. The McDonalds dude pointed to one of the cones and said “I’m not very happy with how this one LOOKS, do you want me to remake it?”
WHAT THE WHAAA?
Since when did I care about how perfect my swirls of glory were? AND since when did McDonalds, of all places, care about food full of gorgeous-osity?”
It was weird.
If you’re wondering, we didn’t make him redo it. We are equal opportunity ice-cream-ists.
Now that we’ve talked about ALL things COMPELTELY unrelated, let’s talk about roasted broccoli.
It’s not coconut milk ice cream. And it’s not frozen. And it’s not swirly and creamy or sweet….BUT it does have a light crunch crunchy, and when it gets all cozied up with a little bit of lime, sriracha and peanut oil?
WATCH OUT. It’ll give that soft serve a run for its swirly goodness.
Well, maybe not. But, for a simple side dish, I would shove my face full of this roasted broccoli ALL THE DAYS.
What’s that? You want to join me?
Then you need to head on over to WholeYum to snaggle daggle the Roasted Asian Broccoli Recipe!
