Dressed Up Broccoli

Looking for a side to go with Boyfriend Chicken this week, I noticed some broccoli in the fridge.  I usually love simple roasted broccoli, but wanted to dress it up a little.  So I made a Walnut and Shallot Dressing to add to the broccoli.  Delicious!  And you really could add it to any veggie for a little dressed up flavor.

Broccoli with Walnut and Shallot Dressing


  1. one head of broccoli, chopped so only the heads remain
  2. sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper
  3. 2 tbsp. oil
  4. 3 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  5. one quarter tsp. chopped garlic
  6. one quarter tsp. chopped shallot
  7. one quarter cup chopped walnuts
  8. 1 tbsp. agave sweetener


  1. On a large cookie sheet, add the broccoli and salt and pepper.  Roast at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, until the edges start to crisp.
  2. While the broccoli is cooking, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic, shallots, walnuts, and agave in a small bowl.
  3. When the broccoli is done cooking, smother it with the dressing and toss to combine.
  4. Serve hot.

Happy Allergy Free Eating!
