For the Broccoli and Brussel Sprouts
300 g long-stemmed broccoli
For the Dressing
1 medium chilli, deseeded and very finely chopped
1 tsp (5 ml) fresh ginger, finely chopped
½ C (125 ml) flaxseed oil
2 Tbsp (30 ml) Bragg liquid aminos
small bunch parsley, roughly chopped
extra parsley sprigs for garnishing
To Make the Broccoli and Brussel Sprouts
Steam the broccoli and Brussels sprouts over boiling water until tender; don’t overcook – they should be slightly crunchy to the bite. Arrange on a plate.
To Make the Dressing
Prepare the dressing, while the veggies are steaming. Mix the chilli, garlic, ginger, oil and liquid aminos together in a jug. Mix in the chopped parsley. Pour the dressing over the hot steamed veggies.
Serve this flavourful vegetable dish hot, or at room temperature, garnished with extra parsley sprigs and a grinding of salt and pepper.
(Bragg Liquid Aminos is available at health shops. It is very close to Soya sauce and is a great liquid seasoning for marinating fish and stir-fries if you are trying to avoid gluten and sugar, as Soya sauce contains both of these).
