Broccoli Recipe with Orange Sesame Sauce
This is a delicious broccoli recipe.
I love broccoli and eat it often.
It tastes great and is one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat.
Combine the orange juice, honey and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil. Mix the cornstarch with water and stir until it is smooth. Add the cornstarch slurry mixture to the sauce pan and return the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook the sauce for 1 minute or until it is thickened. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the lemon juice and sesame oil.
Place the steamed broccoli into a serving bowl. Top it with the sauce and sprinkle it with the sesame seeds.

Did You Know?...
This fantastic vegetable contains so many amazing nutrients, like Vitamin C, Vitamin A, folic acid, an easily absorbed calcium and much more.
It is also chock full of antioxidents, those healthy things that help prevent cancer and other diseases.
I don't know about you, but I have a terrible habit of simply steaming broccoli and eating it as is. I don't always think to make it tastier than it already is, but there are really so many ways you can jazz up your vegetable side dishes.
The honey in this recipe is optional.
I would leave it out myself but I left it in the recipe because many people like sweet things. Leaving the recipe sweet with the addition of the honey would make it more palatable for veggie haters, especially kids.
If you want it sweet but don't want to use the high carb honey you can replace it with your favorite sweetener including Stevia.
Chinese broccoli recipes like this one are not just great side dishes with Chinese recipes. You can also serve this side dish recipe with any plainer chicken, fish or beef recipe.
