“Almonds, roasted red peppers and ginger transform basic steamed broccoli into a pretty vegetable side dish with a special touch of flavor.”


    • 8 cups large broccoli florets
    • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted (see Tip)
    • 2 tablespoons chopped, bottled, roasted red sweet pepper
    • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
    • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
    • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper


  • 1 Fill a large Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid with water to a depth of 1 inch. Bring water to boiling. Place a steamer basket in the Dutch oven. Place broccoli in the steamer basket. Cover and steam about 8 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Remove steamer basket with broccoli, allowing excess water to drain off.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine almonds, roasted red sweet pepper, oil, soy sauce, ginger and crushed red pepper. Add broccoli; toss well to coat.
  • Tip: To toast nuts, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
