Crisp tender broccoli florets are tossed in an Asian dressing for a refreshing and light vegetable side. This is one of those things that I like to keep this in the fridge at all times so I can snack on something healthy and full of fiber all throughout the day. As far as how you prepare the broccoli, my preferred method is always blanching, which means dropping them into boiling water for about 60 seconds, then shocking them in ice water.

This simple broccoli side dish is not only super easy to whip up, but it packs a major flavor punch from sesame oil, garlic, and soy sauce. Just 20 minutes and five ingredients is all this side dish takes. To roast the broccoli and Sesame-Crusted Salmon at the same time, position the broccoli on the bottom rack and the salmon on the top rack.
Chinese broccoli is a leafy vegetable with broad flat leaves and fat stems. It looks different from the regular broccoli and has a bitter note. It belongs to the same family of the regular broccoli but with no floretsand the stalk has a crunchy texture resembles asparagus. The leaves are thick and chewy, which will soak up all the flavors of the sauce.
This is my favorite creation that combines Asian flavors with this wonderful veggie. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the Chinese broccoli and cook uncovered until just tender, about 4 minutes.
