Broccoli Stir-Fry with a Tamarind Twist
Happy Spring… Enter all vegetables NOW!!!! What better way to bring them together than in a stir fry! Instead of going with the usual teriyaki version, we are going to use tamarind. It’s a fruit grown in tropical areas and is commonly known to be from Asia. The pulp from a tamarind once ripened has a paste-like texture and has a sweet/sour taste – giving a stir fry and new and refreshing flavor.
