Broccoli is one of the tastiest vegetables if you cook it right.  The key to broccoli is flavor. In this recipe, I use aromatic spices, Sriacha sauce and the unami of mushrooms to make a delicious and healthy dish.  I added the walnuts for a bit of bitterness and because walnuts are healthy!

Spicy Broccoli with Mushrooms and Carrots


Spices: 1 pinch of cumin/to taste, 1 tsp cardamom

Sriracha sauce to taste

Natural gray salt, fresh ground pepper


1 Carrot

1 Shallot (or more if it’s really small)

Coconut Oil



Heat the coconut oil.  Dice the shallot semi-fine and put it into the oil.  Slowly mix the broccoli into the mix and cover it with a bit of oil and then stir in more.  Cut the mushrooms into 1/2 inch pieces and add them once the broccoli has started to cook.

Walnuts TIP: Walnuts are one of my favorite nuts.  They’re so darn healthy and so tasty.  Walnut nutrition is here.
