Garlic Broccoli Stir-Fry With Pasta

Ingredients

3 cups fresh broccoli florets
4 cups farfalle pasta, uncooked
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes, optional
The sauce

1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (or tamari, or coconut amino)
1/4 cup sesame oil
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Recipe

1. To make the garlic broccoli stir fry: Cook pasta al dente, according to package directions.

2. Blanch broccoli for 2 minutes in plenty of boiling water. Then soak broccoli into ice-cold water. Keep aside in a colander. You can omit this step if you like your broccoli super crunchy.

3. In the meantime, add all ingredients for the stir-fry sauce to a mason jar. Screw on the lid tightly and shake vigorously to combine.

4. When broccoli is ready, add 2 tablespoons of sesame oil in a large skillet and heat to medium. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring often, until fragrant.

5. Add broccoli florets and saute for 2 – 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the stir fry sauce to the skillet and cook an additional 4 minutes, stirring often, until broccoli is cooked but still crunchy. Add a little water if the sauce gets too thick.

6. Add cooked, drained pasta to the pan with the broccoli and mix well to combine and reheat a little. Serve the garlic broccoli stir fry immediately. Enjoy!
