One of the first times I met my husband, he made a late-night dinner for me. I remember it to this day. It was absolutely delicious and one of my favorite dishes that he makes.
He whipped up this recipe so quick that I remember thinking.. wow, I should try this sometime! However, my recipe never turns out as good as his. True story.
This recipe is delicious, quick and doesn't really require much.
If you are lucky enough to live in Florida where broccoli and peanuts are in season right now, you will know just how delicious this recipe can be when using fresh ingredients.
One of the great things about living in Florida is the availability of fresh seasonal produce. In March, when everyone is in the country is suffering through snowstorms and freezing temperatures we're able to brag about having tons of fresh produce available! Let's just say, we love to use ingredients that are Fresh From Florida.
Produce in Season during March:
Bell pepper, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, eggplant, mushrooms, papaya, radish, peanuts, spinach, squash, sweet corn and tomatoes.
This recipe uses broccoli and peanuts. It can also use bell pepper, spinach and cauliflower if you'd like.
