Orange-Sauced Broccoli and Peppers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This makes a beautiful side dish to serve with pork or chicken. I use a combination of yellow and red bell peppers for a wonderful color combination. The recipe is from The Diabetic Cookbook with some minor changes.

Omg this was wonderful! I use red, orange and yellow baby peppers. I didn't cook the peppers as long as the broccoli because I didn't want them to be too soft but otherwise made this delicious dish as directed. Made for ZWT9 Soup A Stars
