IMG_4818

Came up with this idea on a random night when I was home alone. I had a craving for broccoli and I ALWAYS have a craving for spice so I decided to craft up a again flair on broccoli. And what better to boost this superfood than the lacto-fermented qualities of kimchi!

Ingredients

  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/4 cup,lacto-fermented kimchi
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 fresh red thai chili, sliced thin
  • 2 raw garlic cloves, put through a garlic press or grated on a fine microplane.
  • 1 Tablespoon tamari sauce
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  1. Bring medium sauce pan of salted water to a boil and add broccoli.
  2. Cook for 4-6 minutes until desired doneness.
  3. Remove to a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients and season to taste.
