Thanks for sharing a great new way to serve broccoli. This tasty & simple side-dish is one I'll be making again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim and wash broccoli; drain. Cook broccoli spears in a small amount of boiling salted water 1/4 cup) just until tender, about 5 minutes. (Or microwave (1 - 2 tablespoons water) for 3 minutes for 1000 watt microwave, adjust your time according to wattage!).
  2. Drain and arrange broccoli spears in a serving dish.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine vegetable oil, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and sesame seed; bring to a boil.
  4. Pour 1/2 the sauce over the hot broccoli, turning spears to coat thoroughly. Serve immediately.
  5. (Note: Serving size is 2, although there is enough sauce for 4+ servings. I save the balance for dressing leftover rice -- makes an excellent salad topping served warm.
