Spiced Broccoli and Tomatoes

Here's a great Indian vegetable dish and a rice dish. They complement each other nicely when served together...

  • 1 Lb fresh broccoli
  • 3 plum tomatoes, peeled and seeded
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp peeled, shredded fresh ginger root
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper powder (or to taste)
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
Separate the broccoli heads into small florets. Peel and slice the stems. Blanch the florets and stems in boiling salted water 3-4 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain. Refresh in cold water. Drain thoroughly and set aside.

Cut tomatoes lengthwise into eighths, set aside.

Heat oil in no-stick wok or skillet. Add ginger and stir fry a few seconds.

Add broccoli, tomatoes and red pepper powder. Stir fry 2-3 minutes or til vegetables are heated through. Add 1-2 Tbsp water and continue to stir-fry for about 30 seconds.

Serve hot, room temp, or chilled. (4-6 servings; 83 cal, 6g prot, 4g fat, 8g carb, 57mg sod)
