Re: Sauses

I suppose one of the most popular--or traditional, anyway--here in the US is a cheddar cheese sauce.  Make a bechemel and add grated sharp cheddar to melt in off heat.  Pour over cooked broccoli.

Re: Sauses

I think here it would typically be served with a hollandaise, but I think it covers up to much of the actual vegetable. I like my broccoli without sauce to be honest: get the whole flavor straight up wink

Re: Sauses

I like to quickly cook it then toss in a cheese and wholegrain mustard sauce, sprinkle with more cheese and bake until just golden and bubbling.  It's like cauliflower cheese, but not.

Broccoli in Spicy Orange Sauce     

Ingredients :

2    lb    broccoli
1/2    cup    orange juice
2    tsp    honey
1    tsp    Dijon mustard
1    tsp    grated orange peel
1/2    tsp    soy sauce, low sodium
1    x    clove garlic crushed
1/8    tsp    red pepper flakes
1 1/2    tsp    cornstarch
1    tbl    water
1    tsp    sesame seeds toasted

    Method :

     1. Trim the broccoli florets into pieces about 1 1/2 inches long. Cut the stalks crosswise into pieces about 1/3 inch thick.
    2. In a large pot fitted with a steamer basket, bring 2 inches water to a boil. Add the stalks, cover, and steam for 2 minutes. Add the florets and steam for 5 minutes longer.
     3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the orange juice, honey, mustard, orange zest, soy sauce, garlic and pepper flakes to a boil.
     4. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water. Stir into the orange juice mixture and cook until thickened, about 1 minute.
     5. To serve, in a serving bowl, gently toss the broccoli with the sauce to coat. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

Re: Sauses

I recently saw a recipe for broccoli with a yoghurt sauce. I wonder if it was Jamie's - I simply can't remember. I kept thinking that it might be nice if you really wanted sauce....

Re: Sauses

An Asian vinaigrette composed of sesame oil, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce with some ginger grated into it is always nice.  The above all look quite tasty too.
