An easy, healthy meal, perfect for weeknights. Feel free to mix up the ingredients with your favorite vegetables, just make sure to add the "harder" vegetables first, so they are on the heat for longer.
  • one broccoli crown, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • one small sweet onion, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • ½ of a small bag of snap peas (about one cup, washed)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, husk removed, and chopped
  • small nub of ginger, peel removed, and chopped
  • ¼ - ½ cup cooked rotisserie chicken, chopped (optional)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  1. Heat a medium pan over medium-high to high heat.
  2. When it's hot, add 1-2 Tablespoons oil.
  3. When the oil is hot, add the broccoli and onion pieces. Add them in a single layer, and let them cook until the broccoli brightens and the onion browns around the edges. Stir and continue to cook, but know that the less you stir, the more the vegetables will caramelize (this is a good thing!).
  4. Add the snap peas, garlic, and ginger. Stir to make sure everything touches the bottom of the pan, but again, don't over-stir.
  5. Add the chicken if using.
  6. Add the soy sauce, and stir to distribute.
  7. Let it cook a few minutes longer, to fully caramelize and bring out the flavor. The vegetables should be very bright, with browned edges.
