Exotic Vegan Broccoli With Orange Slices

Updated on June 4, 2016

This dish is very exotic. I made it on the spur of the moment with things I had around the kitchen. It is influenced by Asian cooking. This is because I have utilized mandarin slices of orange. This is a vegan dish. It is full of lots of ingredients which might seem unconventional. This dish takes a long time to cook. I spent an hour and a half preparing it.

      My husband enjoys exotic food sounds like an interesting combo and one that would be well received in our house once my son gets back home. May serve this one up for his welcome home meal. My son and husband thank you.

      @VspaBotanicals: This was very delicious. The trick is to spend a lot of time sauteing the vegetables. Broccoli is a very healthy vegetables. It is an important one to eat. I have been thinking I should eat more of it!
