Sometimes broccoli has a lot of stem and looks more like a small tree rather than a vegetable. This thick stem is quite delicious so don’t discard it. Peel the outside skin off, cut it into a small dice for quick cooking and add it to the pan with the onions and garlic.
You can substitute 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro for the mint and basil.
To make this recipe suitable for a neutropenic diet, leave out the fresh herbs, or add the herbs before you turn off the heat and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring.
