Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I scaled back for one serve (about 1 cup of large florets with a weight of 80 grams) and I think I may have been a little heavy handed with the chilli pepper flakes as it was definitely spicy but very enjoyable, thank you TeresaS made for For Your Consideration tag game at FF&F.

This has just a tiny bit of zing, which is all I want. I like to cook my veggies longer than most, so I didn't pay attention to the time. Thanks, Teresa.

This is delicious and went so good with Curried Pork Chops I made. The flavors are delicious and would pair very well with Asian cuisine. We will enjoy this again!

Yum. Loved how simple, but yet filled with flavor that brought all that broccoli goodness right on out. We all enjoyed it, because how can one not. Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it for FYC and Billboard Tag.

We loved it! The flavors went very well with our Chinese dinner of Shrimp Lo Mein, Kung Pao Chicken & Fried Rice.
