We love broccoli around here and I’m always looking for new ways to make it. Yet oddly enough, this is the first recipe I’ve ever actually posted featuring broccoli. Oh this Orange Sesame Broccoli side dish, I love everything there is to love about it. The fresh ingredients, the tantalizing crunch and the creativeness of concocting a side dish using spices I’ve never combined before. Voila, a new favorite!
Are you a snacker? Oh boy, I am. If you’re like me, it’s a wise idea to be more intentional and mindful of your eating habits. Yes, I’m talking about snacking because… I’m hungry.
Luckily, this one is natural and quite healthy (as long as we don’t overdo it on portion size). Last week’s 3 Minute Munch Mix and today’s Maple Sesame Roasted Almonds are both snacks that are full of nutrients and tasty enough to satisfy. I shared these almonds at a party and they were gobbled up in no time.
Maple Sesame Roasted Almonds Recipe

- 2 cups almonds natural unsalted
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
