Stove Top Garlic Broccoli

20 minutes | 4 servings

  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Garlic Sauce
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 4 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch


1. Add sesame oil to large skillet. Pre-heat skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces and set aside.
3. In a bowl, whisk together garlic sauce ingredients until lumps are gone. Set aside.
4. Carefully add broccoli to pre-heated skillet and cover. Cook for 5—7 minutes covered, stirring often to prevent burning.
