Superfood Goji Berries & Roasted Broccoli Bowl

Superfood Goji Berries & Lemon Roasted Broccoli Bowl from

I feel like side dishes don’t get enough credit. They’re can often overlooked and ignored, and we’re left with some bland steamed veggies. Not this. This is the my favourite side dish.

The hints of lemon are just heavenly, especially when you bite into that roasted garlic which has soaked up all the delicious flavours. The broccoli is crispy and tender, and the plump goji berries provide an amazing tartness and sweetness to the dish.

This can be a side to anything really. Have it in a large bowl with some avocado, wholesome grains, or hummus. If you eat meat, it’s perfect alongside almost any type. You can even have it instead of popcorn as a movie snack, as the crispy broccoli holds it’s shape perfectly – though I’d omit the goji berries if you’re making it into finger food.
