pan roasted broccoli with almonds -- gluten free + dairy free

my mom is in town and we're hitting it hard. tomorrow i turn the big 3-0 so were out and about enjoying the final hours i have left in my twenties. this isnt going to be an extensive post, as this week has been a tad hectic. however, i wanted to be sure to share a new recipe with you.

this ultra delicious and ultra healthy side dish is a great accompaniment to any main dish - be it chicken, fish, or red meat. pan roasted broccoli is cooked every so quickly then with the addition of tamari, red pepper flakes and sliced almonds its transformed into a light asian inspired side.

pan seared broccoli with almonds
  • 1 head of broccoli - florets separated from large stalk, washed, still wet
  • 15 whole raw almonds roughly chopped (or 1/8 cup slivered almonds)
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1 small garlic clove - minced
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • salt + pepper to taste
heat olive oil in large pan over med-high heat, throw in broccoli. cook 5-8 minutes, until broccoli turns bright green and just begins to brown. add in tamari, red pepper flakes, garlic and season with salt + pepper. toss around pan so that broccoli is evenly coated, then add in almonds. at this point i typically add in 1-2 tbsp of water to get the broccoli just to the bite i like. remove from heat, serve immediately or place in the fridge for a cold broccoli salad later.


  1. Yum! My broccoli loving family will love this. thanks for the recipe.

  2. My family LOVES broccoli, thanks for the recipe, and thanks for sharing on Allergy-Free Wednesday!

  3. My mom has recently had to go gluten free so I'm scouring the internet for good side dishes for when we go over for dinner. This looks tasty and uncomplicated, thank you!

    1. Yay! Gluten free in all actuality isn't too difficult. You'll be surprised at how many dishes there are out there that can be tweaked to be GF - and they taste just as good!
