Most kids love Chinese take-out and will gladly eat broccoli. I make this for the “big kid” in my life- my husband. He hates veggies, but he coo-coo for Asian flavors that perk up this crisp tender, nutritional packed veg!

Serves 2-4


1 large bunch fresh broccoli, (about 1 1/3 pound)
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium beef or vegetable broth
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon brown sugar or sugar substitute
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon canola or corn oil
3-4 scallions, thinly sliced


Trim broccoli and cut into florets. Peel stalk with a vegetable peeler and slice thinly. Set aside.In a medium bowl, stir garlic, broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar or sugar substitute, and sesame oil.

Heat a large skillet over heat high and add the canola or corn oil. When the oil is hot, carefully add the broccoli. Cook 3-4 minutes, stirring continuously until the broccoli begins to brown slightly. Reduce the heat to medium and add 1/4 cup of water. Cover and cook 3-4 additional minutes until the broccoli begins to soften.

Pour sauce over broccoli, cook 2-3 minutes longer until the broccoli is tender-crisp and the sauce thickens. Sprinkle with scallions and serve immediately.
