Turmeric & Broccoli Stir-Fry

Recipe adapted from “Tablespoon.com” for Diet Kontrol, Inc.

This stir-fry recipe is a twist from the usual soy sauce based stir-frys and a great way to try the turmeric spice for the first time.

Our Recommendation/Results:

If you would like to have a more saucy dish, try our variation which includes adding a small
amount of chicken stock or water. This also helps the broccoli cook a bit faster.
Preparation wise, difficulty level was 5 out of 10 (1- least difficult and 10-most difficult).
