Broccoli with Garlic Sauce

Garlic BroccoliMost kids love Chinese take-out and will gladly eat broccoli.

I make this for the “big kid” in my life — my husband. He hates veggies, but he coo-coo for Asian flavors that perk up this crisp tender, nutritional packed veg!

Serves 4



  1. yum. this definitely sounds like broccoli that even non-broccoli lovers will enjoy!
    i am absolutely going to have to try this one.

  2. Enjoyed making this and it was delicious. As close as I’ve come to replicating that wonderful, classic New York Chinese take-out ‘Broccoli with Garlic Sauce’ (which I miss terribly living as an ex-pat here in Europe).

  3. Ever since moving to the south this is one of the dishes I missed the most from the northern/midwest states. Next time I’m going to add shrimp to it.

  6. Just tried it! Absolutely scrumptious!

  7. Absolutely brilliant – great, simple, QUICK recipe that even us guys can make 🙂

  8. I am a college student who is trying to learn how to cook some delicious, healthy recipes, and this was a great start!

    I threw in some crushed red pepper to add a little kick 🙂


  9. Great recipe – I added a little bit of schezwan sauce. Thanks!

  10. I made this for my family with brown rice and they loved it! I used honey for sweetener.

  11. This is totally delicious. I will double the garlic sauce recipe so I can have some sauce for my brown rice. I never cooked fresh broccoli before and it came out just the way I like, with a “snap”

  12. My East Coast/Chinese Food snob hubby had nothing but great things to say about this recipe. Even before adding the chili flakes. A rarity in our house! Thanks!

    • Thanks Erika, glad to hear it! You can also add grilled chicken to that and a side of steamed brown rice to make it a meal. So nice to hear that your cooking up a storm 🙂

  13. Instant hit with the family – 3, 7 and 44. Will absolutely make it again. Easy and delicious!

  14. Nice Healthy Dish!

    just made this, absolutely delicious. Im stuck in po-dunk Ohio with no good chinese anywhere in sight…. this reminds me of Wo-Hop in NY

  16. Your recipe is easy to follow and so delicious. I love chineese food, preferably when I try to make it myself so I know what’s in it.I also like Thai food, so I made my own version of Pad Thai and it turned out great. Thank you

  17. sounds great. I am going to try it with tofu to get my protein in too! thank you!

      @Jack: Jack, look under the recipe title for the textlink entitled PRINT. When you click that link, it brings up a nicely formatted one-page recipe. Save the PDF to your desktop, then print it — hope that answers your question.

  19. I’ve made this numerous times; it’s a great recipe. I like to add onions, red peppers, some hot chilis and serve it over brown rice! Very delicious and much less heavy than traditional takeout! Thanks 🙂

  20. I’m with Uli – not a fan of veggies, but you’re right, veggies in Asian dishes are really quite sublime. I’m making this ASAP! (PS My dog is crazy for raw broccoli stalks)

    My wife and I really liked it, but we found we needed to make a double or triple portion to get as much sauce as we wanted. (also doing a little more cornstarch helps at times, cause I think it is better if it isn't too runny).

  22. added soy sauce and ginger…pretty good.

  23. My daughter loves this dish and it’s so quick & easy to make!
