Remember this post?
Well, here is the first result of my endeavours.
One of the things I am passionate about is eating local, seasonal produce wherever possible so this freshly picked broccoli from our own garden was destined to become part of our evening meal.
A simple stir-fry of chicken and broccoli.
CHICKEN & BROCCOLI STIR-FRY (Serves 2)
1 chicken breast fillet, cut into strips
1 small onion, cut into wedges
1/2 head broccoli, broken into small florets
1 tablespoon toasted sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons tamari
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
1/4 teaspoon powdered chilli
2 teaspoons arrowroot
Heat the oil, saute the chicken until cooked then add the onion and broccoli. Combine all of the ingredients for the sauce. When the broccoli is lightly cooked add the sauce and stir until it has thickened and coated the chicken and vegetables. Stir in the sunflower seeds.
Serve with rice.
Delicious and the money spent on netting the raised beds containing the brassicas has definitely been a worthwhile exercise.
I am looking forward to plenty more meals featuring our homegrown broccoli.
