Two things I’m big fans of — roasted broccoli and nuts in just about everything.

So why not both? There is no reason I found after making this easy side dish.

Roasted broccoli is an amazing side on its own. I like broccoli in just about all forms, but something magical happens when you put it on a pan and roast it in a high heat oven.

I used two seasonings here — Roadside Chicken and Hot Roasted Garlic — to give it depth of flavor and a little heat. Some Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil makes it sizzle, and orange juice at the end gives it a zip.

You can use roasted or raw cashews here. If they’re raw, you can roast them with the broccoli; if roasted, just add them to the end. Either way, they add necessary crunch and flavor to this easy and tasty side dish.
