Broccoli with Garlic Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup minced fresh garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 8 - 9 cups fresh Smith's Farm broccoli florets
  • 1 batch of homemade *stir-fry sauce
  • unsalted white rice, for serving

Stir-fry sauce:

  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons gluten-free reduced-sodium soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and heat to medium 
  2. Add minced garlic and cook for 3 - 5 minutes, stirring often, until garlic begins to brown
  3. Add broccoli florets and *stir-fry sauce to the skillet and cook an additional 10 - 15 minutes, stirring often, until broccoli is desired texture (I prefer mine with a little crunch, so right around 10 minutes was perfect for me)
  4. Serve over unsalted white rice (see notes)

for the STIR-FRY SAUCE:

  1. Add all ingredients to a mason jar. Screw on the lid and shake to combine
  2. Be sure to use this stir fry sauce with fresh minced garlic and fresh minced ginger in your stir fry (cooked with your vegetables/protein), as stated in the post. This is what will give it the "wow" factor. 
  3. Once your stir fry is mostly cooked, add sauce and heat an additional 3 - 5 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Serve immediately
  4. READ THIS RECIPE NOTE - this is intended to cover 6-8 servings of stir fry, served over UNSALTED rice or noodles. Otherwise it will be too salty. It is a highly concentrated sauce. A little goes a long way!
