Stir-Fried Broccoli is an easy one-pot dish that makes a very nutritious vegetable a treat to eat!
In an effort to round out the blog with some basic vegetable recipes that taste amazing, I bring you broccoli! Broccoli can be roasted, steamed (meh!), or boiled (Don’t do it!), but I preferred it fried. Stir-fried, that is!
Charlie and I have just started a dietary reset by following the Elimination Diet Meal Plan this week. We’ve done an elimination diet a couple of times before (I tell about that here.), but have talked about redoing it for a couple of years now.
I think I know my food intolerances, but an elimination diet keeps me focused on really good, nutritious food. It’s a great time to cleanse and refuel the body. I also wouldn’t mind losing a couple of pounds! For Charlie, we may determine a food intolerance that he’s suspecting.
We’re starting this a little later into the year than the early birds who got right at the diet in January. Since the New Year, we’ve had a big birthday party, Valentine’s, and a niece’s wedding, so we felt that now would be the best time for us to fit in the diet. Really, any time of year that you can focus on it is great. You have to do whatever works best for you. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see what we’re eating.
So far, I’m really appreciating the detailed planning that Dr. Kimberley O’Brien has put into the Meal Plan. There are weekly grocery lists, video explanations of how to shop, and a menu plan that incorporates leftovers. Besides all of that, the food is delicious!
Broccoli is one of the foods that we’re encouraged to eat often. Dr. Kimberley explains that is activates our liver enzymes to promote detoxification and help prevent chemically induced cancers.
Now the key to the great flavour achieved in this recipe is the broth, or stock, that you use. It’s easy to make your own rich stock and avoid the excess sodium and MSG of store bought broth and bouillon cubes. If you must purchase your broth and you need to avoid gluten, check the label carefully as many of them contain gluten. Look for ingredients on this Gluten List.
