Yield: 2 Servings
|1||Clove garlic; minced|
|¼ teaspoon||Red pepper flakes|
|¼ teaspoon||Diet margarine|
|Olive oil spray|
|2 teaspoons||Dry-roasted peanuts; finely crushed|
|1 teaspoon||Fresh lime juice; or to taste|
Separate broccoli into flowerets and stems; slice stems into ¼" pieces.
Steam broccoli for 4 to 6 minutes, or until it is crisp-tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook garlic with red pepper flakes in margarine and spray, stirring, over moderate heat, until it is golden, add the peanuts, the lime juice, and salt to taste, cook the mixture, stiring for 1 minutes.
Transfer the broccoli to a bowl, add the peanut mixture, toss the broccoli to coat it. Serves 2. [54 cals, 2g fat] PatsNotes: * Steam the broccoli with a small piece of lime peel, zest only.
* Optional: a little fresh gingerroot, minced, and cooked with the garlic.
* I can't believe it's not butter spray or olive oil spray.
