Sweet Miso Broccoli Stir-Fry

A quick and easy side dish to add some yum to your fibre and protein – and it’s great for bentos too!

Broccoli is sooooo good for you – and not just because Mom said so! It is full of vitamins (notably C and K), antioxidants, fibre, and even has anti-inflammatory properties. And despite what some of our childhood memories tell us, it’s delicious too!

In this Japanese recipe, broccoli teams up with ground pork and a sweet miso sauce to create a harmony of tastes and textures in your mouth. It goes great with a bowl of rice, the neutral flavour complimenting this dish’s more pronounced one beautifully.
