Sesame-Ginger Steamed Broccoli

sesame-ginger steamed broccoli

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

No steamer basket required for this recipe. A modest amount of liquid in a standard skillet steams the broccoli to perfection.
  • 1 lb. broccoli, cut into medium florets (6 cups loosely packed)
  • 2 Tbs. mirin or sake
  • 1 Tbs. tamari
  • 1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds

Place broccoli, mirin, tamari, ginger, oil, and 1/4 cup water in large (2- to 3-qt.) skillet. Cover, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Steam 4 minutes, or until broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender. Sprinkle with salt and sesame seeds.

Used sliced carrots and parsnips instead of broccoli. Forgot to add 1/4 water ( it wasn't listed in the ingredients) and it still turned out to be delicious! Carrots and parsnips began to caramelize! Thanks for a tasty, easy, quick recipe. Ann

This is so good. I only had regular sesame oil but it was still good. I am picking up some toasted sesame oil today so I can see how much better it is going to be. I can eat this regularly.

I thought tamari was made with wheat (in addition to soy), or am I thinking of something else?
