Broccoli and Boiled Egg Stir Fry
Today I am featuring a recipe that is very simple and quick to make, protein rich and loaded with one iron rich vegetable, Broccoli. When I migrated to states, Broccoli is one in the list of vegetables that amused me, and used to think how can humans eat this thing? After some time, I have tried it unknowingly in most of the Chinese fried rice and stir-frys and developed interest towards it. After pregnancy and deliveries knowing about the high iron content and nutrition values in this tree looking like vegetable experimented several recipes with it. And no need to say I am addicted to this vegetable now.. :-). Here is the recipe, Enjoy!
