Appetite for Reduction
by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

A fun way to liven up broccoli when you're tired of the same-old same-old. This broccoli goes great with Asian-themed meals. Mirin isn't totally essential, but it gives the broccoli a fragrant and sweet flavor. You can sub a little white wine if you must, though. (Can be made Gluten Free if using GF Tamari in place of soy sauce)
Active Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 20 Minutes
Serves 4


    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
    • 3 cloves garlic
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1 bunch broccoli (about 1¼ pounds), stems thinly sliced, tops cut into florets
    • 1 tablespoon mirin
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons orange zest
    • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice


Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the ginger in the oil for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and saute for a minute more. Use nonstick cooking spray or a splash of water if things are sticking.
Add the broccoli, mirin, and soy sauce. Saute for around 7 more minutes, tossing frequently, until the stalks are tender. Add the zest and orange juice, and saute for a minute more.
Serve immediately.

We don't exactly associate broccoli with protein, but would you believe that more than 25 percent of the calories in broccoli are from protein? Well, believe it! 'Cause it's true!
