Healthified Broccoli “Tempura”

There is something about battered broccoli that is incredibly delicious.  It is a popular item at Asian food restaurants but unfortunately, it is extremely unhealthy.  The batter smothers out the nutritional value of the broccoli because it uses processed flours and is fried in damaged fats.  Although this recipe doesn’t look like the typical tempura, the taste is very similar and the best part is that you can eat it as part of your regular healthy diet.

Broccoli Tempura• 1 head broccoli florets, lightly steamed
• 1 cup almond flour
• ¼ cup nutritional yeast
• sea salt to taste
• extra virgin olive oil

Heat a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil over low-medium heat (never heat olive oil over high heat and do not let it smoke) and add steamed broccoli, almond flour, nutritional yeast, and sea salt.  Heat until broccoli is warm and all ingredients are mixed well.
