"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."

"This was a very good addition to our family's "meatless monday" recipe collection. I was out of onion so used dried onion flakes and opted for frozen broccoli florets. Next time I might add fresh sliced mushrooms. Thanks for the recipe!"

"I used slightly less ginger, and still this was a great sauce for any combination of vegetables (we threw everything we had in the fridge, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, broccoli, onion). Instead of almonds we topped with edamame for a vegetarian main dish."
