Did you know that broccolini is good for your heart both physically and mentally? It’s an anti-inflammatory that keeps blood vessels strong while also being a good source of mood-boosting vitamin B.
Get in your greens in a new, tasty way by roasting your broccolini. The fresh garlic adds a sweet, nutty flavor while the pepper adds heat. It's a simple side dish your guests will love. Serve with my goat cheese and spinach stuffed chicken with savory mushroom sauce for a complete meal!
