This weekend, I was preparing broccoli as a side dish and wanted to try something a little different. I picked out “Spicy Green Tea Grilled Broccoli,” a simple recipe from Cooking With Green Tea (not a vegetarian cookbook, but worth checking out, especially for fans of green tea). It called for chile peppers (though I used simple pepper flakes) and had a nice little kick. The green tea absorbed well into the broccoli. I was quite pleased with the dish overall.
In looking for similar recipes online, I came across Healthwell’s Green Tea Stir-Fry with Garlic and Ginger that sounds mighty good. Swap out the honey with an alternate sweetener and the recipe’s vegan.
