Stir-fried Brocollini and Sweet Bell Peppers
Brocollini - an entire bunch that consists of about 10-15 stalks - remove the leaves
Sweet Bell Pepper - about 10 - remove the stalk and chop into half
Onion - finely chopped or long slices, as per your preference
Toasted Sesame Seeds - 1-2 tbsp
Salt - as per taste
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Ajinomoto - a pinch
Soya Sauce - 1 tsp
Worchestire Sauce - a few drops
Chilli Powder - optional, as per taste
Sugar - a pinch
Canola oil - 1-2 tbsp
Heat Canola oil.
Add the chopped Onions and let them cook in High heat till they become translucent.
Add the cleaned Brocollini and continue cooking in High Heat for a minute or two. Cover it for 2-3 mins for the stalks to cook and the fresh green color to develop.
Remove the cover and continue cooking.
In a small container, toast the Sesame seeds oil-free and keep them aside. Keep a close watch on them while toasting as they easily brown.
Add the chopped Sweet Bell Peppers and the rest of the ingredients.
Depending on how crunchy you like your veggies, stop cooking appropriately.
Eat it immediately while the veggies are still sizzling.
We had ours as a whole dish by itself and it was quite filling. I am now encouraged to try this with different vegetables! :)
