Broccoli with Sweet Soy Glaze

Here is another quick and easy microwave side. This delicious broccoli accompanied both the Piri Piri Chicken and Microwave Spiced Rice on our plate. Dear sister really enjoyed this one. She asked, "How did you do this?" I think she was most impressed with how tender the broccoli stalks were. I just peeled them and diced them up into small pieces so they would cook with the florets. They steam very fast in the microwave with the onion and garlic. All you have to do is drizzle the cooked broccoli with honey, soy sauce and sesame oil. The combination is a sweet soy glaze. It is delicious with the Piri Piri flavors but I think it would also be great with Asian cuisine. I will definitely make this side again and again.

Broccoli with Sweet Soy Glaze
Serves 4


2 heads broccoli with stems
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
a drizzle of honey
a drizzle of low sodium soy sauce
a drizzle of sesame oil


Cut stem from broccoli crown. Break or cut broccoli crown into florets. Cut 1” of the broccoli stem to remove dry end, peel stem and cut into 1/2” dice. Place broccoli, onion, garlic and a splash of water in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave covered on high for 7-1/2 minutes. Drain and drizzle with honey, soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir to combine.
