African Chili Paste Is the Secret Ingredient to This Amazing Broccoli Dish

Variety is one of the easiest ways to make meals more pleasurable, and this is a far cry from the same old steamed broccoli of your past. Harissa, an African chili paste, adds a kick, but you can also use sriracha or your go-to tomato salsa. Synonymous with love and the heart, rose petals add crunch and beauty, making this dish a sensual pleasure to behold.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

    1 head broccoli, cut into florets

    ¼ tsp salt

    ⅛ tsp ground cloves

    1 tbsp harissa or tomato paste

    ¼ cup shredded soft farmer cheese, mozzarella, or coconut cream

    2 tbsp food-grade rose petals

Preparation

1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium heat. Add broccoli, salt, and cloves, and cover, turning occasionally until broccoli is browned and tender, 10–15 minutes.

2. In a small bowl, combine harissa and remaining olive oil. Dot harissa sauce over broccoli, and If using cheese, sprinkle it over broccoli and melt under a broiler, 1–2 minutes. (If using coconut cream, spoon over broccoli once it is browned and tender, skipping the broiler step). Sprinkle with rose petals. Serve immediately.
