Hot and Sweet Broccoli and Asparagus

 

Hot and Sweet Broccoli and Asparagus

 

I found this recipe in a booklet I got when I purchased local honey for hubby’s allergies.

I updated heat factor for my liking! I would also microwave all the veggies prior to cooking so there was no steaming in the same pot as the glaze. Great flavor!

 

Ingredients:

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoon

1 teaspoon ground ginger (I used minced)

1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

1 pound broccoli, trimmed

1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed

2 tablespoons hot chili olive oil

 

Preparation:

Combine honey, soy sauce, ginger and red pepper

 

Cut up broccoli and slice stem. Diagonally slice asparagus.

 

Heat oil in large skilled, add broccoli and asparagus and stir-fry over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water to pan. Cover and steam vegetables for 2-5 minutes or until tender-crisp. (I didn’t like the crispness, I cooked it much longer!) Drain water from pan. Add money mixture and cook uncovered until glaze is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.

Makes 4 servings.
