    Thankyou for the recipe Kristab. Quick and easy = perfect. Delicious. Served with - Penne with Spinach, Tomatoes and pancetta recipe By Jean.  -  28 Jan 2013


    This dish is very good, and with a few tweaks is even better. I used red and yellow peppers to add a little colour. Before adding the broccoli, I sauteed a little minced garlic in the oil. After the vegetables had sauteed a little, I added a couple of tablespoons of water and covered the pan to let the veggies steam until they reached the desired tender crisp stage. A splash of soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds finished the dish. This was very well received at Easter dinner, even by those who usually reject all things green. This recipe is definitely a keeper.  -  24 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A simple way to enjoy broccoli and peppers. I don't agree with reviewers who said it was bland: sesame oil gives a nice nutty taste to this dish! Sometimes, you just have to enjoy the simple taste of veggies..  -  18 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
