Roasted Broccolini with Avocado Puree

Broccolini is broccoli’s sweeter and lankier sibling. It has hella more flowerettes, which, let’s get real, are the only enjoyable part about broccoli.  

In honor of failure, we’re sharing an easy recipe that you’ll be sure to find success in. I find that if failure is persistent in our lives, it can be helpful to start at the basics. Completing something simple (like this dish) will help us acknowledge the sensation of success. We often have quiet successes countless times throughout our days, but cease to notice their miraculous nature. Even something as simple as properly executing a meal can be a celebratory experience that will provide a small launch-pad to the next rush of empowerment!
