After reading Broccoli and other Tales of Food and Love, I was reminded of the nearly a pound-and-a-half of broccoli sitting in the crisper. What to do with it? I decided sesame broccoli was the answer. This makes a great side dish and will entice people who are sick of soggy broccoli.
1 lb. of broccoli, trim for stir-fry
1 T. vegetable oil, or other high smoke point oil
Prepare the sauce:
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 T. sesame seeds, toasted
2 T. brown sugar
2 T. ginger, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
2 T. sesame oil
1/2-1 t. dried red pepper flakes or chili sauce
Begin to stir fry broccoli in heated wok (or large saucepan) with 1 T. veggie oil. When broccoli is cooked to ideal doneness(~4 minutes), add sauce and stir. When sauce is heated through remove from heat and enjoy!
