Asian Broccoli

We eat this Asian broccoli recipe at least once a week, whether we are eating an Asian inspired meal or not.  It is our go-to when cooking with fresh broccoli.  To be honest, it makes an amazing side dish for a keto meal that I absolutely crave and always want more.

A favorite thing that I do to a lot of my vegetables is allow them to brown just slightly.  This gives them a little extra flavor that really adds to the taste.  I do this with my cauliflower seasoned "fries" and definitely to my baked brussel sprouts.  I definitely recommend it in this recipe.  You can do this by cooking the broccoli and a medium heat to start out for a few minutes, and then switch to a medium-low heat to finish off the cooking.

This Asian broccoli recipe does include soy sauce.  If you're one of the people also on an anti-inflammatory diet that are avoiding soy sauce, you can try out some coconut aminos to replace the soy sauce.  A good brand from Amazon is below (affiliate disclaimer here):

(Have you tried eliminating soy sauce and are still experiencing inflammation?  You may not have a problem with soy sauce.  Read our article on why we include soy sauce as a keto food.) 

Broccoli is such a healthy vegetable to include in your diet, especially on the ketogenic diet.  Broccoli is high in vitamins C and K.  It is also a detoxifying vegetable - which is extremely important on the ketogenic diet.

Don't overlook this keto Asian broccoli.  It's a super easy recipe and allows for you to get some greens easy and fast!
