Equally good subbed with other varieties of broccoli: broccoflower, romanesco or broccolini. From Vegetarian Times November/December 2005 issue. I'd be willing to try this with white balsamic for a change of pace.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large sauté pan, sauté olive oil, garlic, shallots and red pepper flakes over medium heat. Stir frequently for about 5 minutes, just until garlic and shallots are soft, being careful not to burn!
  2. Add the chopped broccoli to pan and sauté 1 minute. Add the orange juice, vinegar and salt. Cover pan, and steam for 3-4 minutes ONLY until broccoli is tender. Do not overcook. The broccoli once cooked, should be firm-tender and very green.
  3. Stir in orange zest and toasted sesame oil. Serve immediately. Garnish with freshly cracked black pepper if desired.

I made this for PAC 2006. I love orange and broccoli together! This is a good one. It was a little more labor intensive than I like for a side dish, but very tasty. This would be really good with green beans too.
