My husband had rope sausage and hashbrowns for dinner I opted for this tasty dish! Eat greens every day!
Broccoli with Orange and Parmesan
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 quart of canned tomatoes or 14-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 head of broccoli, florets and stalks trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flake
1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shavings
2 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat combine the orange juice and tomatoes. Bring to a boil and stir in the broccoli. Stir in the oregano and red pepper flakes, then cook until the broccoli it just tender,and bright green – a couple minutes. Do your best to avoid overcooking the broccoli. Season with salt and pepper, and transfer to a serving dish. Drizzle with the olive oil, and sprinkle with the cheese and almonds before serving.
