Broccoli and Pepper Medley : Colourful and Tasty


Could you ask for more fabulous colour in a dish than this? Well, surely you'd be hard pressed to! This really is a wonderful combination of broccoli and peppers and a dish like this can be ready in a flash! Well about twelve minutes!

Ingredients:
Serves Four
2 tsp groundnut oil
100g frozen chopped onions
1 tbsp frozen chopped ginger
200g tenderstem broccoli, stems halved
2 red peppers and 2 yellow peppers, de-seeded and cut into thin wedges
1 tbsp light soy sauce
25g toasted flaked almonds


Method:
1. Heat a large wok or non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, then add the oil and swirl around the pan. Add the onions and ginger and cook for 2 minutes. Turn the heat up to high, add the broccoli and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
2. Add the peppers and cook for 6 minutes, stirring as you go. Add the soy sauce and scatter over the flaked almonds. Spoon into a warmed serving bowl and serve straight away.

What a wonderfully colourful plate of food. I've only recently taken to peppers and much prefer mine raw in a salad or with some hummus.

Hello Ivy, and thank you for your comment.
Peppers are great aren't they and so colourful. I do try and buy the red, green, yellow and orange ones most weeks, and then ring the changes with my menu plans.

Have a lovely weekend

All the best Jan

Hello Adam, and thank you for your comment... a warm welcome to the low carb diabetic blog.
Peppers are not to everyone's taste, perhaps just try them on the odd occasion and see if you may get to like them better ...

Have a lovely weekend

All the best Jan
