I used on frozen green beans instead of Broccoli because I didn't have broccoli. Very good; paired well with my Mongolian Beef over rice dinner. Just have to get past the calorie count:)

This was a nice way to make broccoli. I think it is hard to find something to pair this with as the orange flavor is very strong. It was easy and inexpensive.
