#RaelEats: For when you’re anxious and upset: Roasted Broccoli with Garlic Walnuts

Remember when we didn’t want to eat broccoli as kids? Now we know why our parents tried so hard to force it on us—it truly is a superfood. Chock full of fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin E, and magnesium, broccoli can help you beat PMS and regulate your digestion. Some studies show that magnesium might also help with anxiety. Broccoli also contains vitamin C, which boosts your immune system, as well as iron, which helps fight the fatigue that comes with blood loss.




  • Fiber, vitamins B6 and E, and magnesium help with PMS symptoms
  • Magnesium helps with anxiety in some studies
  • Also a great source of: iron, vitamin C


Serves 4

2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets with some stalk still attached

Olive oil, for roasting

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

¾ cup full fat Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon lemon juice + 1 tablespoon lemon zest (from 1 lemon)

½ cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped

1/2 garlic clove, finely grated

¼ cup small basil leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the broccoli with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread broccoli evenly onto the pan and roast, turning occasionally, until tender and frizzled in parts, about 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then spread onto the bottom of your plate or serving platter.
  3. In another small bowl, toss the walnuts, garlic, lemon zest, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stir in the basil.
  4. Once the broccoli is out of the oven, arrange it over the yogurt, then top with the garlicky walnuts.
