Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
1 large head broccoli
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
2 cloves garlic, minced
Ingredient Line: 
3 Tbs. peeled, grated fresh gingerroot
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. whole wheat flour
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup calcium-fortified soy milk

Instructions: 

  1. Cut broccoli into florets. Peel stems, cut in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Steam broccoli until bright green and just tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low. Stir in flour and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent browning. Gradually stir in soy milk, salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until sauce is thick and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Remove broccoli from steamer and arrange on serving platter. Drizzle with sauce and serve warm.
