These may not be very pretty but they’re really good! I probably shouldn’t have put them on a green plate, though 😉

Ingredients:

12 oz. broccoli florets, blanched for 2 minutes in boiling water

1/4 yellow onion, sliced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 egg

2/3 c. bread crumbs or gluten free crackers

2/3 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Salt & pepper

Dash of chili paste

Directions:

Preheat the broiler.

Saute the onion and garlic in some olive oil.

Place the broccoli, onion, garlic, egg, breadcrumbs (or crackers) in the Cuisinart. Pulse until smooth. Add the chili paste and seasonings. Mix. Add the cheese and mix.

Put the entire mixture into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.

Grease a baking dish. Place a tablespoon dollop of the broccoli mixture on the baking dish.

Broil on high for about 3 minutes or until brown on top. Turn them over and broil again for a few minutes, making sure they don’t burn.

Here’s a nice tasty way to enjoy these tender young broccoli.

Directions:

Cut off the tough part at the bottom of the stem. Place them in some water and microwave on high until the stems have softened.

In the meantime, melt some butter on the stove. When the broccoli are soft, drain them and add them to the butter mixture. Coat them well and salt them.

Remove them to a plate and shred some parmesan cheese on top.

Easy, delicious and healthy!

Standard

FullSizeRender

This was tasty and really good – I used a good quality flank steak and cut it very thin against the grain.

Ingredients:

3 T. oyster sauce

2 T. soy sauce

1 T. marsala or sherry

3 T. water

4 t. sugar

1 T. cornstarch

1 lb. flank steak – cut into thin strips

1/3 c. green onions – sliced on the diagonal into 1/2″ slices

1 T. minced ginger

1 lb. broccoli florets

Rice

Directions:

To make the sauce, add the oyster sauce, 1 T. soy sauce, the sherry or marsala, 1 T. water, 2 t. sugar and 1 t. cornstarch. Mix it well and set it aside.

Marinate the steak in 1 T. cornstarch, 2 T. water, 1 T. soy sauce, and 2 t. sugar in a Ziploc bag for about 15 minutes.

Heat some oil in a wok. Add the steak and stir fry it for about 2 minutes. Remove the steak from the wok and set aside.

Add a little bit more oil and stir fry the green onions and the ginger for about 30 seconds. Add the broccoli and 1/4 c. water. Cover and cook for about 3 minutes.

Return the steak to the wok and stir in the oyster sauce mixture. Cook until the meat is just barely done and the sauce has thickened a bit.

Serve over rice.

This is so tasty – it asks for brown sugar, so I only added a touch of it, but I think it would be delicious even without it altogether!

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef

1/4 c brown sugar

1/4 c soy sauce

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 t. minced ginger

1 T. sesame oil

Green onions

One bunch broccoli, cut into florets

Directions:

Boil the broccoli in some salted water. Drain them and set them aside. Brown the ground beef and garlic in a separate.pan. Drain the fat and add the brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil. Season with pepper. Add the broccoli and simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Top with the green onions and serve over brown rice.
