After the last few months of holiday indulging, we’re definitely ready for some healthier food options and this recipe for Lemon-Ginger Broccoli is both healthy and delicious.
Steamed broccoli is tossed with a light Asian-inspired sauce made by combining soy sauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, freshly grated ginger and sesame oil. Some hot sesame oil also adds just a little bit of heat (it’s not too spicy at all – just the perfect amount of warmth) and it really compliments the broccoli and other flavors.
This recipe, originally published here, also calls for a small amount of fructose in the sauce which helps to mellow out the flavors. I think this sauce is delicious without the added sweetness, but let your own taste buds decide – adding fructose (or sugar) is optional.
