This broccoli goes with almost any meal. We like it with Five Spice Chicken. The toasted almonds give it a nice crunch.


  • 1 bunch broccoli - cut into florets, stem peeled and chopped
  • 1 T oil (see tip)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, grated, or pressed
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger (see tip)
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon equivalent artificial sweetener
  • 3 Tablespoons toasted slivered almonds


1) Lightly steam broccoli, or microwave in a covered container in small amount of water for 3 minutes.

2) While that is happening, if the almonds aren't toasted, you can do that in the skillet you're going to use for the broccoli - either in a dry pan or a small amount of oil.

3) Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, sherry, and sweetener.

4) Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet. What kind of oil should I use?

5) Stir-fry the broccoli in hot oil for 1-2 minutes, until almost tender. Push to the edges of the pan.

6) Put ginger and garlic in the center of the pan (add a little more oil if need be), and saute 30-60 seconds, until fragrant. Tips for using fresh ginger

7) Put sauce in the pan, and toss all ingredients together. Top with almonds.

Excellent, Guest Loly

This was very easy to make and tasted exactly like chinese take out food! I suggest a little less soy sauce as I found it to be a bit salty.
