Organic & Whole Living: Summer Side Dish Broccoli & Sundried Tomatoes
Summer is my ultimate favorite time of year to cook. I love veggies and the lighter side of summer meals. This is one of my favorite summer side dishes. I even make it for myself for lunch sometimes.
You will need:
2 Small Heads (or one large head) of Organic Broccoli. Broccoli is number 19 one the Environmental Working Groups Best to Worst in Pesticides List. Anything past the 10 mark I try to use organic and local.
3-4 T Chopped Sun-dried tomatoes packed in seasoning and olive oil.
1T of the sun-dried tomatoes oil.
Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Steam Broccoli in a saute pan with a few tablespoons of water and a lid on.
2. Once the broccoli has softened, add 3-4 T of chopped sun-dried tomatoes, more or less if you'd like. I like a lot of them.
4. Once you've added the sun dried tomatoes to the saute pan continue to saute on med low for a few minutes. If you feel like you need to add a T of the sun-dried tomato oil, go ahead. Salt and pepper to taste.
5. Saute until your desired doneness.
Of course you could sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese over it, but I like to keep this as light as possible.
