Broccoli + Lamb One-Pot Wonder

gluten free recipe

I'm a fan of quick, nutritious meals that pack a serious punch of flavour with little clean up or prep. 

Anyone else with me?!

Many of the recipes I create are just that - whole, clean, anti-inflammatory eating that takes minutes to make in the kitchen.  Here's my latest creation that I was excited to share with you.

This recipe was inspired by Stillwell's Brussel sprout dish - it's probably my favourite thing, besides beef tartare at Highwayman, in Halifax.  I took the idea, made it a bit more "clear skin friendly" and added in some protein to make a full meal.

Broccoli + Lamb One-Pot Wonder

Prep time: 35 minutes.  Cook time: 15 minutes.  Serves 2.


  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 lb ground free-range, local lamb
  • 1 tbsp black bean sauce
  • 2 tbsps coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp local honey
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • Optional: 1/4 cup toasted cashews

Cut broccoli into bite-sized florets and let sit for at least 30 minutes (this helps boost the sulforaphane level in the broccoli).

Cook ground lamb in a large pot on medium heat until medium-rare.  Set aside.

Combine black bean paste, coconut oil, honey and cayenne pepper in pan and heat through.  

Add lamb and broccoli into the pot with the sauce.  Mix and cook together on medium heat for a final two-three minutes to let the flavours combine and gently soften the broccoli.

Portion into two bowls, top each bowl with 1/2 sliced avocado, green onions and optional toasted cashews.
