Broccoli With Asian Style Dressing

"From Farmer John's Cookbook: The Real Dirt on Vegetables. I make this without the peanut oil and just a splash of the sesame oil for my dietary needs, but wanted to post it as written. This is a wonderful way to serve steamed broccoli."

    Fast and delicious! I used only 2 tablespoons of the vinegar and took your lead on the peanut oil (omitted it, actually). I used a 12 oz. bag of broccoli, so this fed two of us. It was very yummy!

    I wish I had taken the other's advice. Forgot to check. It was way too vinegary. The kids wouldn't eat it. I like it, but next time I would cut the vinegar at least in half. I used 1/8 tsp Thai red chili paste for the chili oil, which was a good sub. I might try again with more broccoli and less vinegar. Made for Vegan Swap.

    This was fine, but not great. I took the advice of an earlier poster & cut vinegar in half - glad I did. Made for Vegn Recipe Swap 2

    This is good. It took only 5 minutes to make-I microwaved my broccoli for 4 minutes and made the dressing while it cooked! I would do as Rita did and cut back the vinegar to half next time-too much dressing and a bit tooo vinegary but a great recipe still.

    Nice kick! I did cut back on the rice vinegar to 1/4 cup. Thanks!!


I live with my hubby and three feline children in Oakland by Lake Merritt. My rating system: 5 stars if the recipe works without having to make changes (my own subs just for personal preference do not count) *New Rule: If hubby says "mmmm" or "this is good" without me asking if he likes it, it automatically gets five stars 4 stars if the recipe needs a minimal amount of changing because the recipe does not work the way it was written or if overall it just didn't WOW me. 3 stars and below if the recipe just does not work or if the instructions are not written clearly enough to make it. Please know that I will change your recipe to fit my diet. I mean no disrespect, but since I have to diet I have to do it. I refuse to limit myself to recipes that already fit my diet and like the challenge of changing already existing recipes to be healthier. I will leave out the oil, leave out or replace the cheese and milk with a non-dairy alternative, and use whole grains. I will also leave out meat and broth and choose vegetarian, low sodium versions/alternatives. I still rate recipes that I make these changes to. But, if I use a recipe as inspiration only- meaning I got a great idea from it but changed it all around- I generally will not give any stars but will put a little note stating what I did. I love to give credit where credit is due. I don't deduct stars if I personally do not like an ingredient in the recipe. I don't make recipes that I think that I won't like, which is why you will probably notice that most of my ratings are pretty high. I think it is silly that people choose to make recipes that include ingredients that they don't like then rate them poorly saying "I don't care for..." Anyway, you get the idea.
