This tasty combination makes a great side dish or a full entrée. Fresh, crunchy veggies in a tasty sauce is sure to please. Use all the broccoli—don’t waste those tasty stems. Just be sure to follow the directions for prep.
Combine sauce ingredients and set aside. Can make larger batches and refrigerate.
Prep broccoli by separating the florets for the stems. Peel the stems and slice in rounds.
Heat oil in wok or large frying pan. Add ginger and garlic and saute for about 5 seconds to release the aromatics. Add the broccoli stems and stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Add the onions and bell peppers and stir-fry about 1 minute.
Add water chestnuts, broccoli florets and sauce and stir-fry to desired texture. Don’t overcook, keep crispy.
Serve over brown or white rice. If you have never had this, try sprouted brown rice, also known as GABA rice. It’s super healthy and tastes great!
