I have been making broccoli this way for-ev-er. I've just never gotten around to posting the recipe. Finally doing it! It's our favorite way to make broccoli, no doubt.
4 c broccoli florets (1 large bunch)
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 c low sodium vegetable broth
1 tbsp cornstarch
red pepper flakes
In a bowl, add garlic, soy sauce, broth, and cornstarch. Whisk to combine.
In a large skillet over med-high, add sesame oil, a sprinkle of red pepper flakes, and heat for a minute.
Carefully add broccoli florets. Cook for about 4 minutes, stirring often to prevent burning. Reduce heat to med-low, then and add garlic sauce. Stir well to coat. Cook for about 3 minutes. Sauce will thicken and absorb into the broccoli.
