I like to make this broccoli when I'm making an "asian" themed dinner. You can make this lighter and lower in salt by eliminating all the extra salt called for in this recipe as the light soy sa...

This was a treat – a flavorful, colorful and healthy treat. I don’t like my *cooked* vegetables crunchy, so I increased the cooking time to about 3-4 minutes. I adjusted the seasonings somewha...

Instead of boiling the broccoli, I steamed it for about 4 minutes, until crisp-tender (which means I didn't use the 2 T of vegetable oil and 1 T salt). The whole recipe was simple and delicious....

I used a bag of raw broccoli slaw and cut the sesame oil in half. Used one tablespoon agave nectar instead of sugar and added 2 tablespoons roasted sesame seeds, 1/4 cup raisins, and some sliver...
