This was one of the ones I chose to try with my beautiful baby bok choy from the farmers market. This went together very quickly. I too did not cook the broc. for the full 5 minutes. This has very nice flavor. I thought it was worthy of a 4, but dh loved it and thought it was a 5+. So we agreed on a 5! Oh, and I reduced the oil to 1/2 a tbsp. and used olive oil infused with garlic. Very nice.

For some reason my star rating is not showing on my computer, but I'm giving this recipe 5 stars. It's a tasty vegetable side dish that is fast and easy to put together. I have been looking for creative ways to use more vegetables to accompany lunches and dinners and to get out of the salad rut. I eat so many salads for so long that after a while, I just can't eat another one, but I still want healthy vegetables on a daily bases. This recipe was even good cold for lunch the next day. I also cut down on the oil.
