    Very good, easy and quick! Can't ask for more. Made this to go along with other Asian dishes. I omitted the fish sauce because I didn't have any.

    Delicious! I misread the recipe and added 2 tbsp sesame seeds so there was plenty of crunch! Thank you Sackville Girl for another easy recipe with lots of flavour.

    This is excellent. It has a smoky, complex flavor that I did not expect from the ingredient list. I like this much better than my old standby of oven-blasting broccoli. Thank you!

    Absolutely delicious and perfect directions. My broccoli lovers went nuts and my non-broccoli eaters ate it up, so this is a for sure bet that I'll be making this again. I made it as written, this is a great recipe. Thanks Sackville Girl!


This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
