Broccoli Oriental

My husband got me some cookbook when he came back from vacation. One of them is the Better Homes and gardens New Cook Book. I tried the broccoli  but instead of frozen I used the fresh one, omit the sesame seed and added onion instead.

Broccoli Oriental

  • 1 small head broccoli ,cut into florets 
  • 1 tbsp butter or margarine 
  • 1 tbsp sugar 
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 1 tbsp water 
  • 1 small onion ,cut into rings 
  • 2 tsp sesame seed, toasted 

1. For frozen broccoli, cook according to package directions. Drain, keep warm. For fresh broccoli, blanch it in boiling water with a tsp of salt. Drain.
2. Combine soy sauce, butter,sugar, onion rings and water.
3. Heat till butter melts.
4. Pour over broccoli, top with sesame seeds (optional)

 visit Food Trip Friday for more mouthwatering food.
