Broccoli with Sunflower Seeds

Quite simple broccoli and sunflower seeds recipe.



-   ¼ yellow onion chopped
-   1-2 cloves garlic chopped
-   ~1/2 cup grapeseed oil or cold pressed olive oil
-   Black pepper to taste
-   Salt to taste
-   1 tsp italian seasoning
-   1 average head broccoli separated into florets
-   ½ average tomato, chopped
-   1 tbsp fresh mint chopped
-   1 tbsp or more sunflower seeds
-   Mashed potatoes prepared in advance



In a large skillet pour the oil and lightly saute onion and garlic, then add tomato. When onion is turning golden, add broccoli, italian seasoning, salt, pepper, sunflower seeds and mint*. Mix everything well, cover with lid, bring heat to maximum, then turn off the stove and let stay for 5-10min. This way the broccoli will be cooked but still crisp. Serve on top of mashed potatoes with some cucumbers and definitely some avocados.

*If you want, you can sprinkle the ingredients in skillet with cooking soy sauce at this point, this will add some sweetness.
