This is one of the tastiest ways to perpare broccoli (for a side dish, leave out the pasta). Don't let the anchovies scare you: because they're chopped so fine they melt into the sauce, leaving just a hint of briny flavor that's a perfect complement to the herby broccoli.
This is a Japanese style sweet and savory pumpkin recipe. Kabocha has slightly sweet taste, and it is cooked in many different ways in Japanese cuisine. For example, tempura is a popular way to cook kabocha. Cut kabocha into thin slices to make tempura. Also, simmering is a common way. Kabocha tend to keep its shape even if it's simmered. This is a great side dish to accompany a Japanese meal.
I just saw this recipe on her show, and had to try it out! It is delicious, refreshing, and brightens up any salad. Simple ingredients that you always have on hand. No need to buy premade bottled dressing when you can make it for cheap at home, and tastes much better!!!
