Sesame Broccoli

MAKES: 4 servings
CRISPY RATING: Nice blend of tangy and sweet


  • 1 Pound Broccoli, fresh or frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons Sesame Oil
  • 2 Teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Honey
  • 2 Teaspoons Sesame Seeds

1. Place broccoli in steamer basket and steam until crisp-tender. Or steam in microwave, covered with saran wrap. Drain well.

2. In small saucepan over medium heat, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, balsamic vinegar and honey. Stir until well-mixed and heated.

3. Transfer broccoli to bowl. Pour sauce over broccoli. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Not alot of work to this and it's worth it for an alternative to plain broccoli for dinner. I prefer it as a side dish rather than a main dish, but I can imagine that if you added some beef strips, you'd have a great Beef with Broccoli dinner.
