Apricot Chik'n with Broccoli

Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables contain a compound called indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which has the ability to create detoxifying enzymes that can break down carcinogens, help repair DNA, and stop cancer growth. This recipe is great for those who like their savory dishes with a hint of sweetness, and the apricot preserves provide just that.


Makes 4 servings

1 cup apricot preserves
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon oil
2-3 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 8-ounce package seitan (thawed if frozen)
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1-2 cup frozen broccoli

Combine apricot preserves, garlic, oil, tamari, and vinegar and mix. Add mixture to skillet and combine with seitan, bell pepper, and broccoli. Cover and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until heated through.
