Broccoli with Garlic Sauce

I want to eat more broccoli. And this is a new recipe:

1 head of broccoli
2-3 pieces garlic
small piece ginger
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sugar (brown if possible)
olive oil
1 tsp corn starch
2 tbsp water
1 tsp sunflower oil
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Boil 1.5 litres of water in a saucepan
  2. Remove the florets from the broccoli head. Be sure the head is cleaned.
  3. Blench the broccoli in the boiling water for 30-45 sec. Just to see how it gets a bright green color! Remove from water and pass it via cold water. Set aside.
  4. Grate the garlic and ginger.
  5. Prepare the sauce by combining together soy sauce, sugar, oil, corn starch and water. Set the sauce.
  6. Heat up a nonstick pan to medium heat. Add a bit of olive oil.
  7. Cook the broccoli for 2-3min each side. Until you see a bit of char. Put aside
  8. Clean the pan, and put at medium-low heat, add olive oil and paprika (replacement of chili oil). Mix clean so it doesnt burn.
  9. Add the garlic and ginger. Gently cook for 2-3min
  10. Add the broccoli and turn the heat to medium. Sauté for about 1min
  11. Add in the stir fry sauce and if you have a lid, place it immediately so you can steam the broccoli steam for about 30-45 seconds. If not, just toss the broccoli so it gets the sauce spread in all bits.
  12. Plate the broccoli and garnish with white sesame seeds
