Low-Carb Chargrilled Broccolini Recipe

I probably should tell you this, but this recipe combines two foods that I’ve never been a fan of.

My husband and son really like broccolini, but eating it steamed has always left me feeling unimpressed. And, try as I might, I’ve never been able to love tahini, it’s just weird tasting, lol.

BUT. First a friend of mine served me a salad with this divine sweet, tangy, earthy dressing and then shocked me senseless when she told me that it was tahini. I cut the sweetness back in mine and love it even more!

And then I saw a recipe for char-grilled broccolini on television and thought “Hmmmm…”

Anyway, by tweaking those two ingredients I’ve created a keto meal that I LOVE. The crunchy almonds are just the cherry on top. It’s a great side dish for those who keep their carb intake low, whether they follow the ketogenic diet or simply want to eat real food. Enjoy!

Did you know? Cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli and broccolini, are also known as goitrogens and can interfere with thyroid function. Fermenting, microwaving, steaming, or boiling these vegetables can reduce their goitrogen content by 33-50% or more, depending on the length of cooking time.
