Broccoli with Sesame

With a coating to tongue-tingling sauce an topping of crunchy sesame seeds, broccoli makes a fancy but fuss-free side dish. This vegetable is so nutritious that it's great to have a special way to serve it. —Doris Heath, Bryson City, North Carolina

    This sauce is excellent! A simple, easy, tasty recipe. I had frozen broccoli on hand but will use fresh when I plan ahead.

    I made this as a side to teriyaki-marinated sirloin tips. Delicious! I used fresh broccoli and then steamed it. We loved the addition of sesame seeds too. It was so good I used the sauce on the other sides too!
