Ginger-Sesame Steamed Broccoli

Ginger-Sesame Steamed Broccoli
This recipe doesn't need a steamer basket, just a modest amount of liquid in a standard skillet steams the broccoli to perfection. The ginger and sesame impart a slightly Asian flavour to the dish. Delicious on its own or as a side dish.
