Makes 2 servings

Generally, when we see more than 2 foreign ingredients, we re-think the desire to choose such a recipe.

This recipe had us reconsider why we never cooked with fresh ginger before! It’s crazy cheap and has a taste that bites.


  • 1 tbsp. minced carrot
  • 1 tbsp. minced red onion
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • ~1 large head of broccoli, cut into chunks
  • 2 tsp. hot water

How to:

  1. In a skillet, combine the first 5 ingredients and cook for ~3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Once softened, add broccoli and stir to coat. Add water and cook for another 1 minutes.

Make it a meal:

  • Use as a side dish
  • Stir into whole grain pasta, toss in some baked tofu or black beans
