Broccoli Oriental

Broccoli is one of those great for you veggies that are of the cruciferous vegetable family along with cabbage and cauliflower.  They are associated with cancer prevention.  We eat broccoli at least once a week and this is one variation.  I think broccoli pears well with oriental flavors and this is no exception!

Broccoli Oriental

2 10 oz. pkgs. frozen broccoli spears (I use fresh)
1 T. butter
1 T. sugar
1 T. soy sauce
2 t. toasted sesame seeds

Cook broccoli according to package directions.  Drain; keep warm
Combine butter, sugar, soy sauce and 1 T. water; heat till butter melts.  Pour over broccoli; top with sesame seeds.

***To toast sesame seeds, sprinkle in skillet on stove top over med. heat.  stirring occasionally until light golden brown.
