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

  • 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.

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.

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...
