Farmers Market Recipe: Broccoli and Sweet Pepper Stir-fry
Wash hands and assemble clean equipment. Peel tough broccoli stems. Cut stems and florets into pieces about 1 1/2 inches long. Blanch in a large pot of boiling water for two to three minutes or until bright green and tender crisp; drain, cool under cold running water and dry on paper towels. De-seed peppers and cut into thin strips. In large, heavy skillet or wok, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; stir-fry for one minute. Add peppers and stir-fry for two to three minutes, adding chicken stock when necessary to prevent sticking or scorching. Add broccoli; stir-fry until heated through; sprinkle with soy sauce. Serve immediately.
Optional: add a protein like tofu or chunks of cooked chicken.
