Orange Ginger Broccoli

I haven’t posted the rest of my Christmas Eve dinner and it has been almost a month since Christmas!

Today I am posting this Orange Ginger Broccoli.  It is a recipe that is super easy and quick and gives broccoli a different taste rather than the way I typically just roast it.

Orange Ginger Broccoli

This recipe was adapted from Appetite for Reduction:


  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh garlic, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 cup orange juice


  1. Preheat a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Saute the ginger in the oil for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and saute for 1 minute.  (Add a splash of water if things are sticking to the pan.)
  4. Add the broccoli, mirin, and tamari.  Saute for about 7 minutes, tossing frequently, until the broccoli is tender.
  5. Add the orange juice and saute for one minute.  Serve.

If you’re trying to eat more greens, or already do but want to eat them with a different flavor, I highly recommend this recipe.
