Excellent broccoli! The combination of sweet, salty, and spicy really made this a veggie treat. I've been in a vegetable rut and this dish helped to shake things up, and it was quick and easy to put it together which was an added bonus. My only changes were reducing the amount I made and subbing toasted pecans for the almonds because I had some on hand. I used the smaller amount of Sriracha which was plenty spicy for us.

Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe KUW. My dh & I enjoyed it very much. What a great blast of flavor. The broccoli was quick and easy to prepare, with terrific results. The perfect accompaniment with mashed potatoes and baked chicken. Made as written but omitted the nuts, because of dh's allergy. Made for Best of 2013 Tag Game.
This is exquisite; I think it's now my favorite way to cook broccoli also. There is none of the commonplace bitter broccoli taste, and it's so delicious, you can eat it for an entire meal. I wouldn't hesitate to service this over rice for a meatless meal. I didn't even have the almonds or green onions; still fantastic. It wasn't very hot at 1.5 tsp. sriracha.
