A simple orange, ginger and soy sauce drizzle gives broccoli both a sweet and spicy note and elevates the humble veggie to a rave-worthy side. It comes together quickly and is sure to be your new weeknight go-to veg. To save time, zest and juice the citrus and mince the garlic and ginger while the broccoli cooks. If you’d like to add a little heat, stir in some crushed red pepper or cayenne pepper. We loved the soy mixture with broccoli, but it would also be quite delicious with roasted green beans or carrots. Serve with an Asian-inspired fish dish and rice.
