Sesame – Soy Broccoli

I loved this recipe my friend made for us and I couldn’t wait to make it at home. The flavor of the sauce really makes steamed broccoli taste wonderful – even my kids gobbled it up (and they aren’t huge fans of broccoli). I love the sweet and salty flavor combination – it goes well with any Asian style main dish. Super simple and super tasty – I love that!

Meanwhile, combine the sugar, olive oil, soy sauce, and rice vinegar together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook while whisking until the sugar has dissolved.

    I love summer squash, steamed broccoli, and green beans. Sweet potatoes are great too. This "Sesame" idea is sound and look so delicious.
