2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1 scallion, sliced thinly on bias

1 red pepper, diced

Toasted sesame seeds for garnish


  1. In a steamer place the stems on the bottom, slice 3 thin slices of ginger, place over stems and top with broccoli florets. Steam broccoli for 5 minutes.
  2. Grate the rest of the ginger, there should be about 2 teaspoons. Mix the ginger with soy, vinegar, and sesame oil, and toss with broccoli (remove the ginger slices before serving). Arrange on platter, top with red pepper, scallions and sesame seeds
