sesame broccoli

This dish is a simple way to enjoy broccoli. Cooked broccoli is tossed together with a slightly sweet and spicy ginger/garlic sauce. The crunch from the sesame seeds complete the dish. Enjoy!

4 cups broccoli (cut into bit-size florets)
1 TBS toasted sesame oil
2 tsp minced ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
2 TBS water
1 TBS shoyu
1 TBS brown rice syrup
1 tsp kuzu, diluted with cold water
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 TBS toasted sesame seeds

  1. Cook the broccoli in boiling water for a few minutes. Drain on a colander and set aside in a bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, place sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Cook on a medium flame. Be careful not to burn. When it becomes fragrant, add water (be careful as it may splash), shoyu and rice syrup.
  3. When the mixture comes to boil, thicken it with kuzu diluted with water. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper.
  4. Add the sauce to the broccoli and mix. Sprinkle the sesame seeds and serve.
