Simple vegetable stir fry with broccoli and peppers

A vegetable stir fry does not have to consist of only 'Asian/Chinese' vegetables like beansprouts, bak choy or choy sum. Almost any vegetables can be stir fried.

This stir fry consists of only three ingredients: broccoli, red pepper and garlic. A drizzle of soy sauce and sesame oil and you have an attractive, healthy and delicious dish for the table.

Broccoli and peppers stir fry with garlic

Ingredients (serves 2):
1 small head of broccoli, separated into florets
1 red pepper
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil

Blanch the broccoli florets in boiling water for a couple of minutes so that they are partially cooked. Stir frying is a quick method of cooking and the broccoli stems would take too long to cook properly. Drain and set aside.

Heat some oil in a large frying pan or wok on medium heat. Add in the garlic and stir for 30 seconds to fragrant the oil before adding the peppers and broccoli. Stir fry for a few minutes until the peppers are cooked (you will see a change in colour). Drizzle soy sauce and sesame oil at the end, mix well, and serve immediately.

I have been tagged by My Cooking Hut for a meme of 5 things, but I have already done a very similar one last month of 7 things. But do check out her lovely blog with mouth-watering photography.
