Calcium-enriched soy milk, fresh gingerroot and garlic add extra flavor to simple, steamed broccoli. And don’t throw away your broccoli stems. Peel off the skin with a paring knife, then slice and steam the stems. Calcium per serving: 408 mg.
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.
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.
Remove broccoli from steamer and arrange on serving platter. Drizzle with sauce and serve warm.
