Teriyaki Broccolini

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.

Ingredients:

  • Teriyaki Sauce:
    •  1/4 C soy sauce or liquid amios
    • 1 cup water
    • 1tbsp fresh grated ginger, powdered would work as well
    • 3tbsp coconut sugar (brown sugar works fine too)
    • 1 clove of garlic, minced
    • 2tbsp cornstarch
    • 14 cup cold water
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1lb of broccolini
  • 1/4 C water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Make the sauce first:
    1. Mix 1 cup water, soy sauce, coconut sugar, garlic and ginger in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
    2. In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of cold water and add to sauce.
    3. Consistently stir to thicken the sauce.
    4. If the sauce is too thick add a little water or soy sauce to thin out
  2. For the broccolini
    1. Spray a large pan with olive oil and set on medium high heat
    2. Add broccolini and sauté for 1 minute.
    3. Add 1/4 cup water; cook, turning with tongs, until broccolini is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
    4. Add teriyaki sauce and stir. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until broccolini is tender.
    5. Enjoy!!
