Do you ever find yourself in a vegetable rut? I do. We gravitate toward salads, roasted veggies, smoothies and raw veggies with dips. I’ve been wanting to make more stir fries so when I saw this easy recipe on Produce for Better Health, it was a no brainer.
This turned out great. The broccoli is really crisp so if you want it softer, just steam it ahead of time or keep it covered for longer. I know my kids prefer crisp over soggy.
What is your favorite way to make veggies?
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 cups broccoli
- ¼ cup broth (or water)
- 1 large red bell pepper cut into strips
- ½ medium onion, sliced
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- ½ tsp. salt
- Add oil and garlic to a skillet over high heat. Once the garlic begins to sizzle (not brown) add broccoli and sauté until bright green. Add broth, remove from heat and cover for about 2 minutes.
- Return skillet to high heat adding the onions and pepper. Sauté another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in lemon juice and salt.
