We can’t wait for springtime when the gardens in our neighborhood are bursting with fresh produce. We can hit an excellent selection of roadside stands on our drive home from work each evening and load up on lots of fresh fruits and veggies.
But it’s still February and we still need to eat our vegetables. So, we went looking for something new and found this broccoli dish with a hint of Asian flavors. It’s a perfect fix when you’re looking for a vegetable side dish this winter. The bell pepper and garlic add a little kick. Don’t forget to top the cooked broccoli with the sesame seeds. They add a little something special.
