Recipe Ingredients for Sesame Broccoli

1 tsp Ginger, Ground
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Oil, Sesame
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
2 lbs Broccoli
1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
1 pinch Pepper, Black

Recipe Directions for Sesame Broccoli

  1. Directions

  2. 1. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet until lightly browned, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Or purchase ones already toasted at an Oriental style market or Oriental section of your market.

  3. 2. Whisk together the ginger, soy sauce, oil and lemon juice in a shallow serving bowl. Set aside.

  4. 3. Trim, peel and cut the broccoli stalks diagonally into 1/2 inch slices.

  5. 4. Steam the florets and stalks until tender-crisp. Remember to steam the first 7 minutes without the lid on so the color isn't lost.

  6. 5. Transfer the broccoli to the serving bowl and toss it with the ginger sauce.

  7. 6. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and pepper.

  8. 7. Note: You may use 1 tbsp of fresh squeezed orange juice in place of the lemon juice, if desired.
