Orange and Walnut Broccoli

Yield Makes 4 or 5 servings
Laura A. Flynn loved the combined flavors of orange peel and walnuts with spinach in a pork dish. Curious about how those flavors would complement other vegetables, she created this memorable side dish.


  • 1 orange (about 8 oz.)
  • 1 tablespoon salad oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 5 cups broccoli florets (12 oz.), rinsed and drained

How to Make It

  1. Rinse and dry orange. With a vegetable peeler or small, sharp knife, pare colored part of peel from orange. Cut peels into very thin slivers. Squeeze juice from orange; measure 1/4 cup and save remaining for other uses.

  2. Heat oil in a 10- to 12-inch wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add orange peel, walnuts, and ginger and stir often just until peel begins to brown slightly at edges, about 2 minutes.

  3. Stir in 1/4 cup orange juice and soy sauce. Add broccoli and stir occasionally until tender when pierced, about 5 minutes. Pour into a serving bowl.
