Spiced Orange Broccoli

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

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.

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.

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.
