Broccoli with Teriyaki Sauce


Healthful broccoli florets served with a nicely seasoned and sweetened teriyaki sauce.


Teriyaki Sauce:
2 teaspoons arrowroot
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly minced garlic
1 tablespoon freshly minced ginger
2 tablespoons honey
Pinch freshly ground black pepper


Blanch the broccoli and plunge into ice cold water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside. To prepare the teriyaki sauce, dilute the arrowroot in 2 tablespoons of cold water. Heat the remaining water, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Add the honey and stir to dissolve. Add the arrowroot mixture and the pepper. Continue stirring to thicken. There should be about 2/3 cup sauce. Toss the broccoli with 1/3 cup of sauce and serve.

Refrigerate the remaining sauce and use with other steamed or stir "fried" vegetables.
