Easy broccoli side

Easy broccoli side


This recipe came about by accident.  I was getting my food ready for work tonight, and I wanted to take broccoli.  But I wanted it to be good, not just fair, so I came up with this super fast, super easy, and super delicious recipe.
From start to finish it only took about 10 minutes, and because of that, I was able to dedicate more time to the rest of my meal. (SUSHI!!)

So, here are the ingredients and easy instructions

Ingredients:

1 lb. broccoli, broken down into bite sized pieces
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 cup water
2 tablespoons mirin 
1 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1/2-1 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp. maple syrup
1 tablespoon sesame seeds 
salt and pepper to taste


In a medium saucepan, combine the broccoli, garlic, and water.  Cover and place on the stove over medium high heat.  Bring to a full boil, and let cook for 5 minutes.
While it is cooking, combine the remaining ingredients in a large ziplock bag. 
When the broccoli is cooked for 5 minutes, drain well, and toss them into the ziplock bag.  Seal it and shake the broccoli into the marinade.   Do this for a good 2 minutes, so it is all well covered.
Pour out  into a bowl, and serve hot.  Or, you can cover and put in the fridge and serve cold.  
That is it, just that easy.  I will make this to serve over rice, and make a meal.

  2. If anyone has an ipot, it's just 1 minute (using manual button), closed seal, on top of the steamer rack with one cup of liquid in the pot.
