Here’s a new take on the traditional beef and broccoli combo! I used baby broccoli and eco Vegan’s Spicy Bits. I love the beautiful green of the broccoli and I didn’t even have to add any seasoning because the bits had a lot of flavor. This is a great addition to any Chinese cuisine themed lunch or dinner spread!
Baby Broccoli + ecoVegan Spicy Bits
– 1 package of baby broccoli from Trader Joe’s (or a few handfuls will do!), washed
– 1 package of ecoVegan’s Spicy Bits
– water for cooking
Fill a frying pan about 1/4 full with water. Cover and heat for a few minutes until water is simmering. Add the baby broccoli. Cover and steam until broccoli is bright green, don’t forget to flip them occasionally. (If you don’t have a cover it’s ok, follow the same instructions, it just might take a little bit longer.) Taste test to make sure it is the right amount of crispiness you like– you will be cooking the broccoli with the bits later on so if it’s a little bit crispy for your taste, you can make it softer in that last step.
Remove the broccoli from the pan and rinse with cold water until you are able to handle them. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
Refill the same pan with about 1/4 cup of water (if you have enough water leftover from cooking the broccoli you can just use that). Add the Spicy Bits. Cook them over medium heat in the water until they are heated through. Make sure to stir to keep the bits from sticking to the pan. Add the broccoli and mix together. Cook for a few minutes so the broccoli is heated through as well.
