We really enjoyed this recipe. I substituted a tiny bit of maple syrup for the sugar. I warmed up the dressing in a saucepan before pouring over the broccoli to make sure it didn't cool down the dish. Liked the flavours, thanks for sharing.

PAC Spring 2008 ~ Loved the idea of roasting the broccoli along with the Asian flavors. Will roast my broccoli more often now!

Outstanding! I skipped the ground ginger and oil in the dressing, and doubled the amount of broccoli (for 2 people), so that the dressing would be very subtle, which was perfect for us. We loved the combination of the roasted flavor with the tang of the lemon!
