  • 1 lb broccoli florets, cut into bite sized pieces

  • 3-4 tbsp unrefined coconut oil (can sub olive oil but the coconut oil gives it a really tasty and subtle coconut flavor)!

  • 2-3 garlic cloves, sliced thinly

  • Sprinkle of Trader Joe’s citrusy-garlic seasoning (can sub lemon pepper or your favorite seasoning)
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3-4 dried apricots, diced
  • ¼ cup raw almonds, roughly halved or chopped
  • Garlicky chive microgreens, chopped, for garnish


  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet or cast-iron pan over medium-high. Once heated, add the garlic slices and let sizzle in the oil, stirring so they don’t burn.
  2. Once fragrant (30 seconds - 1 min or so), add the broccoli pieces. Season with salt and pepper & the citrusy-garlic seasoning and arrange in a single layer in the pan as well as you can.
  3. Cook, undisturbed, until starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Flip the broccoli over as well as you can and brown up the other side for 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Stir the broccoli around to ensure even cooking and test for tenderness and flavor.
  6. Once the broccoli is nearly cooked to your liking, add the chopped almonds and apricots and cook 1 minute longer.
  7. Arrange on a serving platter and top with chopped garlicky chives. Dig in and enjoy immediately!
