Sesame Brocolli With Spinach And Red Peppers

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  As delicious as a meal may be, the way it looks adds much to the taste.  These holidays are all about color and generally we associate the celebrations  with red and green.
Why not emphasize those colors in the dishes we prepare? 

This vegetable dish combines two healthy green vegetables, brocolli and spinach, accented with strips of red. It would be a wonderful addition to any meal and guaranteed to get rave reviews.

Sometimes I add water chestnuts for a little crunch. but not always.

Sesame Broccoli with Spinach and Peppers

1 tsp Joe and Son’s Chipotle Olive Oil

1 bunch broccoli, cut into 1 inch florets
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
3 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 - 1/2 tsp minced ginger
1 bag (10oz) washed baby spinach

1 small can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsps Joe and Son’s Toasted Sesame Oil

1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted ( for garnish, if desired)


Heat Chipotle Olive Oil over medium heat in a large skillet until hot. Add broccoli and red pepper; cook until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 5 to 10  minutes.

Add garlic, ginger, spinach, water chestnuts, soy sauce and Toasted Sesame Oil; mix well. Cover and cook until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.

Stir to mix the vegetables together.  Place in a serving dish and serve hot.

 Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if desired.
