If so, you know the explosive love and heartbreak I’m feeling right now.

There’s a war waging in my heart right now. Channing Tatum vs. Orange Cashew Broccoli.

Who will win?

An easy side dish ready in under 10 minutes, this Orange Cashew Broccoli will quickly become part of your weekday meals. A few simple ingredients and a stovetop is all you need to have a healthy side dish recipe for your next dinner.It’s really hard to say. Mr. Orange Cashew Broccoli is so easy, so dependable and fits in seamlessly with the rest of my life. There’s also no denying that Mr. Tatum is beautiful to look at, but easy and dependable he is not. Dat body thoooooooo.

Mr. Broccoli fills my tummy with so much healthy goodness, but Mr. Tatum gets my heart thumping like woah. One is good for the body, and one is good for the soul. Can’t I just have both?

A cinematic masterpiece it was not but damn did I ever leave that theater with the biggest smile and a little extra spring in my step!

The only issue? So did every girl in the city of Toronto.

I may never have Channing Tatum to myself, but at least I have this Orange Cashew Broccoli.

If you’re looking for me, I’ll be hiding in the corner eating my broccoli while painfully listening to this beautiful ballad and day dreaming about his suave dance moves.

Channing, if you’re reading know that I will forever be your pony girl. No amount of broccoli will ever replace you.

    Wow, this dish sounds delicious! I can’t get enough broccoli this time of year, so we’re constantly roasting it for a quick salad topper. We may need to change things up this summer and try this! Pinned!

    Oh my goodness I love everything about this post. After I saw Magic Mike 2 I had to take a second to soak it all in. My mind was totally blown. While Channing made my heart pound, Joe Manganiello is my guy. So you can have channing and i’ll have him and we’ll both have this delicious looking brocolli?! 😉

    I cooked this yesterday evening and it was SO – DELICIOUS!! Mind blown 🙂 Hubby loved it as well. I also added the orange flesh in the sauce mix, so that there will be nice with the crunch of the broccoli. This goes to my top 5 broccoli recipes! Please post some more awesomeness because you got a real fan here 😉
