Broccoli has never been one of my favorite vegetables, but lately I've found myself craving it. Maybe I'm exaggerating a little... I usually crave cookies. But when I'm thinking about what vegetables to eat with dinner, broccoli has been on my mind! So when I went to the grocery store I did a little trolling around for something to liven it up a little. Since the change of seasons this time of year tends to make me a little more prone to getting sick, I decided to jump for the citrus fruits. Bright and delicious, but also high in vitamin C. I picked up some lemon and my new favorite - blood oranges (in season and on sale most places now)!
Blood Orange Broccoli
- 1-2 heads broccoli, broken into florets (you can keep or lose the stems)
- 2 blood oranges ; 1 peeled and chopped, 1 juiced
- 1 tsp olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1-2 lemons, juiced
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
Preheat oven to 425 F. In a medium pot, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Place broccoli in a basket steamer (or colander) and place in the pot with water. Let steam for 5 minutes.
Place the broccoli in a bowl and add the chopped blood orange, the juice of the other blood orange, olive oil, salt and pepper and toss until well coated. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix the lemon juice and ginger with the greek yogurt. Plate the broccoli and dip in yogurt to enjoy!
