14 August

2 pounds broccoli florets
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted

1. Place the broccoli in a steamer basket and set in a saucepan over 1-inch of boiling water. Cover tightly and steam until just tender, 3-5 minutes.
2. To make the sauce, combine the orange juice, honey, and ginger in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat; stir in the lemon juice and sesame oil, and cook an additional 2 minutes.
