Garlic Broccoli

I love broccoli!  So when I made a Chinese New Year themed meal and was searching for recipes for something green (come on, I'm a mom, and every meal needs a veggie!) I was so excited to find this.  The green color brightens any dish, and the crispy texture is the perfect compliment to fluffy fried rice.  Leave out the crushed red pepper flakes if you're serving this to the kiddos, it's a bit spicy, even for adult palates!

1 tablespoon canola oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound broccoli florets
3/4 cup chicken stock
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Heat the canola oil over medium-low heat in a wok or large skillet.  Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, allowing them to infuse the oil for 3-4 minutes.  Increase the heat to medium and add the broccoli.  Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes.  Add stock, soy sauce, and pepper.  Cook uncovered for 5 minutes, until broccoli is tender and almost all the liquid has evaporated.

Serves 4
