stir fried broccoli with almonds

broccoli and almonds

Using up: a head of broccoli, and some of a tin of roast salted almonds we found in the depths of the cupboard

Chopped the florets off the broccoli, and then sliced the stalk into rounds about 1/2″ thick.  Blanched for about 4 minutes.

Mince up garlic and ginger, chopped an onion.  Put some groundnut oil in the wok (not too much – I’m trying to cut down on oil and salt and stuff [sob]).  Added a teaspoon or so of sesame seeds when it was hot, then the garlic / ginger / onion.  Stirred them about until they were looking cooked, then added the broccoli and almonds; about 2 tablespoons of almonds, I would guess.  Then added a goodly sloosh of shoyu, and a little water.

Boiled up some egg noodles to go with it – stirred them all round in the wok together before service.  Quick, light, lovely.
