Broccoli with Asian Dressing
  • 2 heads broccoli florets (reserve stems for another use, or purchase broccoli florets already trimmed in your produce section - they usually come in a bag)
  • ¼ C. mirin
  • ¼ C. soy sauce
  • 1-2 Tbls. rice vinegar*
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • ¼ tsp. garlic chili paste (or use your favorite chili sauce)
  • Garnish: sesame seeds
  1. Blanch broccoli florets in pot of boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and submerge florets in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and keep them green.
  2. Drain broccoli and add to a bowl.
  3. In separate small bowl (I just use a measuring cup) combine dressing ingredients and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour dressing over broccoli and toss to coat (you probably won't need all the dressing).
  5. Garnish with sesame seeds prior to serving.
*You may only want 1 tbls. of rice vinegar if you use low sodium soy sauce. My soy sauce seemed a bit salty for my taste so I added 2 tbls. of rice vinegar which cut down on the saltiness.
