- 1 large head of broccoli, cleaned and cut into pieces
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
Brown onion in oil over medium heat. Add broccoli to onion, cover and cook about 3 minutes.
Mix soy sauce and sugar with the chicken stock. Add corn starch and mix. Pour mixture over broccoli. Cook, uncovered, another 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Broccoli is also good with green onions. I would substitute 1 bunch of green onions, cleaned and chopped. Just saute them lightly before adding the broccoli as it doesn’t take as much cooking as regular onion.
- If you or those in your house don’t like onion at all, you can simply leave it out.
- There isn’t much sugar in this dish and the sugar really evens out the taste a bit, but it is optional. If you are really cutting down on sugar, you can cut the amount in half or omit it.
Cooking fresh broccoli is quick and easy, and its’ health benefits are so great, broccoli dishes should be on the menu often.
This broccoli recipe is perfect for diabetics. It is quite low carb.
