This stir-fried vegetable is a vivid addition to any plate and it comes together quickly. I like it with Wine-And Herb-Braised Pot Roast and Golden Carrot Risotto. From an April 1986 issue of Bon Appetit in the "Cooking for Friends" section.

This was more work than it was worth, unless I were dressing up broccoli for a company meal. the onion and pepper didn't add that much flavor. And we love plain steamed broccoli, without any added steps. Very pretty though. Diane
