For a gourmet-style garnish, you’ll toss crunchy peanuts with furikake—a vibrant Japanese blend that highlights dried seaweed, sesame seeds, and chile flakes.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the furikake peanuts:

Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; roughly chop the broccoli. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Halve the orange crosswise; squeeze the juice into a medium bowl. Roughly chop the peanuts; place in a bowl. Add the furikake and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss to combine.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sautéed aromatics on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped broccoli and sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat.
