I love broccoli and this crispy variety is so satisfying! It is great paired with the sauce and Israeli Couscous and is also perfect as an entire meal when you add simple sliced tomatoes or a side salad.

Because of the frying, this dish is more satisfying. A note, make sure your oil is hot before adding the broccoli so it doesn’t absorb too much grease and also completely dry so the grease does not splash.
