Would you like to feel fancy while making a simple dinner? Broccolini is your guy! Broccolini is a tender, long stemmed version of broccoli. It is a great side to Asian dishes, pastas, chicken, pretty much anything.
I had this dish with pasta.
- Teriyaki Sauce:
- 1/4 C soy sauce or liquid amios

- 2tbsp cornstarch

- 1lb of broccolini

- Make the sauce first:
- Mix 1 cup water, soy sauce, coconut sugar, garlic and ginger in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
- In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of cold water and add to sauce.
- Consistently stir to thicken the sauce.
- If the sauce is too thick add a little water or soy sauce to thin out
- For the broccolini
- Spray a large pan with olive oil and set on medium high heat
- Add broccolini and sauté for 1 minute.
