This recipe is vegetarian and easily vegan by avoiding butter and finding a substitution for honey. Serves 4. Takes about 1 hour start to finish. Inspired by Fine Cooking Feb/Mar 2008.
1.5 lbs. broccoli, broccoli/cauliflower mix or green beans (broccoli stems can be skinned, sliced and tossed into the pan as well)
1 large clove of minced garlic
2 Tbs. soy sauce
2 Tbs. honey, raw or pasteurized (or vegan substitute)
2 Tbs. butter
4 Tbs. olive oil (OR 6 Tbs. olive oil)
Melt the butter with the olive oil in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Once melted, add the broccoli & cauliflower or green beans. Sauté for about 20-30 minutes, or until the veggies are browned, shrunken, and tender.
Reduce the heat to low and add the minced garlic, cooking until the garlic is softened and fragrant. Add the soy & honey mixture. Cook, stirring, until the liquid coats the vegetables and reduces, about 5 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
