This broccoli dish is one of my regulars when I make any type of dinner that has an Asian touch. Last night I made a sticky spicy sweet chicken dish, reminiscent of Chinese take-out, and whipped this up in just minutes.
If you’re in an experimental mood, you could add some soy sauce to the water, or finish the dish with a drizzle of sesame oil or a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
Spicy Broccoli with Ginger and Garlic
You’ll need a large skillet with lid.
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 2 bunches of broccoli florets, stems sliced and florets cut into bite-friendly pieces
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
- 1” ginger piece, thinly sliced and roughly chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced and roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup water
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, salt, crushed red pepper, ginger and garlic. Sauté 2-3 minutes.
Add 1/4 cup water. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 2 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender.
