    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    I've always liked broccoli, providing you are talking about the budding tops. The stems I could do without. For a while there I was throwing the stems away, but that felt so extravagant that I kept wondering if there wasn't something I could do with them. There is... and it's even delicious. Now I look forward to the stems as much as the rest of the broccoli.

      I had leftover broccoli stems and the other ingredients, so I decided to give this a try. The vegetables tasted great together, and had a nice crisp-tender texture. The only suggestion I'd make is to use half the amount of soy sauce and add a little more water -- to me, using 2 tbsp. of soy was too strong and masked some of the taste of the fresh vegetables. But I'll definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!
