Tired of serving broccoli the same old way? Try something new and a little spicy! This recipe comes from Bon Appetit.

Maybe my peppers were a bit hot, but the brocoli got over shadowed a bit by the dressing. Next time I will cut the chilli a little, and add a squeeze of lemon or lime juice. But as Bev said, it really was a ice change from normal old brocolli. I would put the dressing over any green veg, eg. asparagus, beans or Brussels sprouts.
