The fruit Strawberries, tastes marvelous in any form. These bright red strawberries are packed with antioxidants and are wonderfully sweet and delicious. Many desserts with strawberries are shared not only online but in most eateries but my imagination went slightly in a different direction and I came up with this savory Strawberry Sauce with Broccoli florets. 🙂
I know Broccoli can sound boring to many of us but this recipe Broccoli in Strawberry Sauce is a must try. It has sweet, tangy and spicy flavors with fresh strawberries flavored with garlic and basil leaves, spiced up with sriracha sauce and some Asian touch by adding soy sauce and Worchester sauce (low sodium). After cooking broccoli in this delicious and flavorful strawberry sauce its incredible flavors are brought out. The juicy, moist, crunchy taste of broccoli will definitely take your taste buds on a roller coaster ride and when you serve this Broccoli in Strawberry Sauce entrée over the bed of steamed rice/brown rice you will most likely become a fan of broccoli if you aren’t yet. 🙂
When I was thinking about a recipe with strawberries my mind only went for desserts but my heart wanted to go beyond my box and create some unique entrée. Without giving further thought to it I started with the recipe.
I heated some oil and flavored it with garlic, sesame seeds and fresh basil herbs (dried basil can also be used). I added scallions and all the sauces and chopped strawberries and mashed them with the food masher. I loved the beautiful color that the combination brought but I was still anxious about the final outcome. I added the remaining spices and cooked broccoli in the sauce.
Smelled delicious and enticing!! 🙂
This time I wanted my husband to taste it first. I was slightly skeptical and nervous and had no guts to put this entrée in my mouth. I served Broccoli in Strawberry Sauce on the bed of steamed rice with a half-smile on my face.
He ate it all! He ate it alllll! He actually ate it all! Unbelievable! Now it was my turn to try it. I ate this entrée with steamed brown rice and I ate my share as well without even blinking. 🙂 . Yiippee!!!
Wow! It was amazing and delicious and mind blowing. The sweet and tangy flavors of strawberries and a medium spice flavor of sriracha and black peppers and juicy, moist and crunchy broccoli, together they made a magnificent dish. 🙂
