"Never eat broccoli when there are cameras around." -Michael Stipe
Broccoli on its own is fantastic. Sweet and crunchy raw and even sweeter when cooked. It is amazingly versatile and this recipe is a great example. The sesame oil and garlic bring a great roasted umami flavor to the dish and the spice of the ginger and red pepper flakes add some zing. The soy sauce brings it all together.
