Yummy Sesame Broccoli

Ambika came over last night and made this - it was so good!! YUM!

One head of broccoli with the trees separated
One tbsp of sesame oil
One tbsp of Olive oil
A few pinches of crushed red peppers
three cloves of minced garlic

Saute oils, crushed red pepper and garlic for 5 minutes. Blanch the broccoli in boiling water - only about 2 minutes or so, depending on how crisp you like it. Drain broccoli and add to oil saute. Drizzle soy sauce and mix together. Serve and eat. YUM!!
