1. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Blanch broccoli 1 to 2 minutes, or until bright green. Rinse under cold water to stop cooking, and drain well.
2. Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic, and cook 1 minute, or until fragrant. Stir in black bean sauce and sugar, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes more, or until broccoli is crisp-tender.
