Reviews for Sesame Broccoli
"Very good! The flavor of the soy sauce mixture did not over-power the broccoli."
"This was a tasty side dish! I used toasted sesame oil in place of olive oil for a little extra nutty sesame flavor. I found the suggested 10-15 minutes of steaming time for the broccoli to be a tad too long, and would suggest checking it sooner if you like a bit of a bite to your broccoli."
