As the name suggests, this super quick and healthy Garlic Chilli Broccoli makes a great side dish to just about anything. It's even great to have as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up or an evening snack – so make sure you make plenty!

If you haven’t used it before, coconut aminos is a great Paleo alternative to soy sauce, and for that reason, I’ve included it in this recipe to give a real depth of flavour. This dish combines the crunch of broccoli with the nuttiness of cashews and the zing of garlic and chilli, creating a perfect balance of flavours.

This recipe is not only quick and easy but also packed with nutrients, making it a fantastic addition to your Paleo diet.
