Recipe type: Vegetarian
Serves: 4
  • 280 grams broccoli (2 blocks carbs) or broccolini
  • 60 grams baby spinach (0.5 block carbs)
  • 50 grams onions which is about half an onion (0.5 block carbs)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1.38 tsp macadamia oil (3 blocks fat) or olive oil
  • Optional - 85 grams chicken cooked (3 blocks protein) - I served mine up with chicken but you could serve it with anything you like or eat it on its own!
  1. Steam broccoli for about 3 - 5 minutes.
  2. While broccoli is cooking, finely chop onion and prepare garlic for mincing.
  3. Run broccoli under cold water to refresh and chop roughly.
  4. Add oil to a medium sized frying pan and fry onion on low heat. If you are using a small amount of oil, cooking on a low heat helps prevent sticking and over cooking.
  5. Mince the garlic into the pan and fry for another minute or so.
  6. Add broccoli and spinach to the pan and stir.
  7. Serve as a side dish with your meat or on its own.
This recipe cooked as listed is a 3 block zone meal for one person. However if you are just cooking the dish as a side, it would feed about four adults.
