Mediterranean Broccoli

You're still hungry? Good, I've got more from my little paleo kitchen for you. How about some broccoli? This is so quick and easy to put together and it is good for you, too! Bake some chicken breasts and mix a small salad and you have the easiest weeknight meal you could imagine (takeout doesn't count)!

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 lb fresh broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup fresh cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • In an large pan, bring the water to a boil over high heat, Add the broc, cover, and steam until tender. This should take about 4-5 minutes. Drain the broccoli and set aside.

  • Dry the pan with a paper towel and then heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, tomatoes, parsley, and oregano. Saute until the onions are translucent and the tomatoes begin to pop. Add the broccoli, paprika, salt, and pepper and tomato paste and stir to combine. Simmer for 5-7 minutes until heated through.
  • Enjoy!
