This is a really easy to make, yummy to eat meal packed full of flavour and fab-for-you ingredients.
- 1 tsp oil (coconut oil or sesame oil depending on allergies)
- 1 fresh chilli (hot)
- 5 cm² fresh ginger root
- 3-6 tender stem broccoli (depending on size)
- 1 lime
- 1 tsp vegan swiss bullion
- hot water
Pop the oil in a thick based pan and place on a low flame.
Chop up the chilli and add to the pan, then chop up the ginger root and add to the pan and place the lid on it. Let the flavours infuse the oil whilst you chop the stems of the broccoli.
Bung the cut up stems of broccoli into the pan (not the florets or leaves as they take no time to cook and you don't want them turning to mush). Place the lid back on and leave for five minutes - until they are a beautiful shiny green!
Squeeze in the juice of your lime, stir in the Swiss Bullion and then add the florets of broccoli and leaves, I normally add a tablespoon or two of boiling water. Put the lid back on and leave for about 2-3 minutes, and it's ready to serve. I tend to make rice to eat with it.
This can easily be converted into a delicious broth by adding a bit more Swiss Bullion and boiling water at the end. You can add in rice noodles too.
If you use soy sauce in your home then add some to the mix too when you add in the lime.
