Foodie Tuesday – Broccoli with Orange Sauce

We shared our experience at the Fillmore Farmer’s Market last week.  Today, we want to share something else valuable from the farmer’s market…a delicious, folic rich recipe!

This recipe was prepared by the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association and was handed out to everyone at the farmer’s market.  The color and the use of ingredients attracted my attention.  The freshness of the broccoli and orange in the market make me want to use this recipe when I am home.  Seasonal vegetables that you can find in the farmer’s market are always the best ingredients for a delicious meal.
