Broccolini Garlic Stir-Fry (Vegan)

We had an exquisite experience traveling the past few weeks, and now that I’m back home, I’ve been craving everything homemade! There’s just something about your own kitchen and cooking yourself a bowl of comforting healthy yumminess!

This Vegan Indian bowl did the trick today. Lunch was garlicky stir fried broccolini with some cauli-rice and some hearty creamy masala dal (Dal Recipe here)

Ingredients:
Serves 2
2 bunches fresh broccolini, washed (I chop about 2 inches off the bottom stems and finely dice them. I leave the top part with the broccolini heads as is)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tbsp crushed red peppers (use per your discretion)
1 tsp coarse kosher salt

Method:C613BD1F-E0CA-417E-8029-EE56B6040874

Heat a saute pan over medium heat with the measured olive oil and garlic. Bring this mixture to warm while the garlic infuses into the oil, about 1 minute. Add crushed red peppers and stir for 10 seconds.

Add the chopped bottom stem pieces of the broccolini and stir for a minute. Add the rest of the washed broccolini, and sprinkle salt. Toss this thoroughly together. Cover and let cook for 8 minutes over medium heat.

Open the lid, stir it around some more, and let continue cooking open for another 5 minutes and that’s it!  Serve hot and enjoy however you’d like.

I often eat this just as is, and sometimes I pair it with dal or chili. The best Vegan meal is always simple!
