Almond Broccoli Stir-Fry

The broccoli retains its lovely green color when stir-fried, so this dish is not only easy to make but pretty to serve. The almonds add a nutty crunch that everyone really likes.

    I had a head of broccoli that needed to be used us quickly. I found this recipe and am so glad that I did. The entire family loved it. I , also, had some leftover cabbage that I shredded and threw in with the broccoli. I actually forgot to add the sugar and we didn't miss it; however, I will try to remember it next time.

    I was looking for an alternative low cal veggie dish. This was very easy. I used Splenda instead of sugar and it was great! Easy, healthy, and yummy.
