Peanut Broccoli Stirfry

Spiralized broccoli stems, onions, and bell peppers are stir fried in an umami peanut butter sauce and cooked with the broccoli florets for a crunchy and delicious stir fry meal, best enjoyed as is or served over quinoa or brown rice.

Peanut curries and peanut stir fries are my favorite types of Asian noodle dishes, because I love the rich flavor that nut butters add to sauces and that they are thick and creamy. This sauce is further thickened with arrowroot powder, but it’s not absolutely necessary, so if you don’t have it on hand, just omit that step.

Spiralizing broccoli is a great way to use up all of your broccoli and eliminate waste. Before I discovered spiralizing, I would sadly toss the stems in the garbage after I was done with the florets, simply because I didn’t know what to do with them! Now, they have so many great uses – spiralized broccoli is great in a raw crunchy salad, stir fried, boiled into a pasta noodle, and baked into a frittata!

The key to spiralizing broccoli? Make sure you find the largest stems possibly to get the best yield out of your broccoli! Aside from that, it’s easy to spiralize (check out our video on how to spiralize broccoli below for more tips!)

This stir fry saves well and holds it flavor when reheated and your favorite protein can be added, like a chicken or pork. Otherwise, just enjoy as is – there is protein in the nut butter and the flavors altogether are perfectly blended!

I also love using broccoli noodles in stir fries, because they look just like the real deal noodle — don’t they?!

Ingredients

  • 8 cups broccoli florets + stems spiralized, Blade D (about 3 heads of broccoli and their 3 stems)
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 small red bell peppers, Blade A, noodles trimmed

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Steam the broccoli until crisp tender, 3-4 minutes.
  2. While the broccoli cooks, in a small bowl, whisk together the arrowroot and 2 tablespoons of water to create a slurry. Set aside.
  3. In another small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and honey.
  4. Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the bell pepper, onion, and garlic and cook, stirring until softened, about 3 minutes.

sesame oil?
Helen Hood says:
I've been eating broccoli regularly for 40 years and have always eaten the stems, so it puzzles me when I hear of stems being thrown out. I peel them if the skin is thick and tough; otherwise, the stems keep their peels, and they get sliced and included with the chopped florets, and everything is steamed together.
Dan Miller says:

tell me how everyone's doing on their thanksgiving prep - ready? haven't even started yet? I haven't bought a single thing yet! 😇😱🤡
...

the holidays are going to be very tough and emotional for many of us this year. we're not going to spend it with the loved ones we typically do to keep one another safe and even worse, some of us will miss family we've lost to the COVID virus. 💔⁣

something that always cheers me up is food. I've come to realize that one of the reasons it has this therapeutic effect on me is because it's a safe space for me to block out everything else and just enjoy the art of cooking. 🥄⁣

and I realize that this will not be helpful to everyone ("oh, ali, I can't just cook it all way!"), but if it does, try to get in the kitchen and cook (or bake!) something that brings you happiness. and if it does not and you're sad right now, that's okay too. it's okay to not feel okay. 🙏🏼 I wish I could help more, but in the meantime, my love, strength, and heart goes out to you. I'm thinking of you.⁣

but, IF food and cooking is cathartic for you too, I encourage you to make something new this year for Thanksgiving (or over whatever holiday you celebrate.) sometimes following steps in a new recipe keeps your brain focused on the task and you're able to let everything else wash away. at least that's how it is for me! I'm flipping through my cookbooks and sharing some of my favorite holiday-friendly recipes over on stories, like this one from #InspiralizedandBeyond! 📚⁣
