Braised Broccoli with Orange and Parmesan

Recipe from Heidi Swanson


1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 - 14 ounce can fire roasted tomatoes
1 head broccoli, florets and stalks trimmed into bite sized pieces
1/4 teaspoon chopped, fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup shaved parmesan
2 tablespoons toasted, sliced or chopped almonds


In a medium saucepan, combine orange juice and tomatoes.  Bring to a boil and add the broccoli.  Stir in the oregano and pepper flakes, then cook until the broccoli is bright green, a couple of minutes.  Take off the heat, season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle the parmesan and almonds over the top.
