Spicy Stir Fried Broccoli and Peanut Sauce
  • ⅓ cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup water, divided
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons rice bran oil (or any good quality oil)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1½ pounds broccoli crowns, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts
  1. Place peanut butter into a medium sized microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 30 seconds to soften.
  2. Whisk in ¼ cup water, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and vinegar until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add broccoli and cook, stirring frequently, until broccoli turns bright green and begins to soften, about 5- 6 minutes. May get a little brown in spots, this is okay.
  4. Add the remaining ¼ cup water and 1 tablespoon soy sauce, bell pepper and garlic to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until the pepper has softened and the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat; stir in the reserved peanut sauce and season with crushed red pepper.
  6. Garnish with peanuts.
