  1. Fill a large Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid with water to a depth of 1 inch. Bring water to boiling. Place a steamer basket in the Dutch oven. Place broccoli in the steamer basket. Cover and steam about 8 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Remove steamer basket with broccoli, allowing excess water to drain off.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine almonds, roasted red sweet pepper, oil, soy sauce, ginger and crushed red pepper. Add broccoli; toss well to coat.
  • Tip: To toast nuts, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
