Broccoli Stir Fry With Ginger and Sesame

I love broccoli.  Getting other members of the family to eat it is another story at times.  When I prepare broccoli, I like to enhance the natural flavors.  This is  why I love this recipe I found on "Simply Recipes" website.

 This  recipe combines broccoli with the flavors of ginger, sesame, and garlic.  The result is an extremely flavorful veggie side.  The broccoli is stir fried quickly in some high smoke-point cooking  oil with minced garlic and ginger.  A sauce is then poured over the broccoli that consists of chicken broth, sesame oil, and soy sauce.   The broccoli is cooked in the sauce until fork tender and then removed with a slotted spoon.  The sauce is reduced and the broccoli added back to the sauce reduction.  Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.

Every bite is bursting with flavor.  This recipe is a family pleaser at my house.  You can find this delicious recipe here.


  1. I too adore broccoli! This looks scrumptious with ginger an sesame seeds.
    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Sounds good. I usually pre-cook the broccoli in the microwave to speed things up.
