Spiced Broccoli and Tomatoes

  • 1 lb fresh broccoli
  • 3 tomatoes, peeled and seeded
  • 1-2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs fresh shredded ginger
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper powder
  • salt & pepper

Chop broccoli into 1 inch lengths.  Cut tomatoes into chunks.  Heat oil in a wok or skillet.  Add ginger and fry, stirring for a few seconds.  Add broccoli, red pepper powder, and tomatoes.  Stir fry until broccoli turns dark green (cover for a few minutes if necessary).  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

SUGGESTIONS:  If you have kids and/or donít want a spicy dish, you can substitute paprika for the red pepper.  You can also add cumin and coriander for additional flavor.
