While broccoli florets and chunks of red pepper give this dish plenty of color, it's the fresh gingerroot, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil that round out the flavor. —Mary Relyea, Canastota, New York

"Very good! I used frozen broccoli because I had it on hand and some grated ginger in a tube instead of fresh. I always keep the refrigerated tube of ginger on hand for added convenience in making Asian inspired meals and salad dressings."

"My family enjoyed this recipe as a side dish. I also used frozen broccoli for convenience, and it worked great. I don't think using frozen added to the cooking time at all."

"Good. I used dried ginger, a package of frozen broccoli, and toasted sesame seeds instead. Served over rice. It was tasty. I like my sauce thick and lots of it, so it needed more. I liked the color!"

"I have begun having one meatless dinner per week, and this is the latest recipe I tried. I did not have sesame oil, so I used canola; I have no doubt the sesame oil would be even better. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written with the exception of adding a sprinkling of crushed red pepper. My husband and both enjoyed this served over rice. We loved the crunch that the almonds provided. Next time, I may add some sliced water chestnuts for additional crunch, but his is very good as written."
