Creating Quick Side Dishes for One
One of the most difficult things is creating quick dishes for just one person.. Generally, your one servings come from left over ingredients from other dishes. Here I decided to have a broiled crab cake for lunch and I wanted some healthy to go along with my crab cake. I had a head of broccoli and some bean sprouts from my chicken and broccoli meal the previous day.. so why not broccoli and bean sprouts!
I cut half of the broccoli cut it into pieces minus the stems. I blanched it a bit in the microwave for about one minute and added a handful or bean sprouts.
For the seasons I included: one garlic clove, a few dashes of soy sauce, some pepper, and some sesame seeds. Added it to the pan with a bit of olive oil and sauteed until tender!
Delicious and you don’t have to worry about throwing away unused veggies when they can be re-purposed!
Let me know what your think 🙂
