ALMOND ORANGE BROCCOLI- Vegan, Gluten-Free & Oil-Free

I sat down with the intention to write my next review of Happy Herbivore Light & Lean. But as soon as I looked at my computer screen I felt exhausted. I spend about six of my eight hour work day sitting at a desk writing an assessment. Turns out that’s enough to make me not want to write anything else today!

Almond Orange Broccoli

Almond Orange Broccoli

Crisp broccoli smothered in a sweet and salty sauce. 

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 3 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp almond butter
  • 3 tbsp sliced almonds

Instructions:

  1. Heat frying pan over medium-low heat and add broccoli florets.
  2. While the broccoli cooks, add orange juice, soy sauce, vinegar and almond butter to a blender (I used my Magic Bullet) and blend until combined.
  3. Once the broccoli is cooked to your liking (I cook mine just until it starts to turn a brighter green), pour the sauce over the broccoli and sprinkle with the sliced almonds.
