Light sesame oil works best for this recipe. Vegetable oil can be used instead.

A simple way to enjoy broccoli and peppers. I don't agree with reviewers who said it was bland: sesame oil gives a nice nutty taste to this dish! Sometimes you just have to enjoy the simple taste of veggies..

Bland; plain steamed broccoli has more taste.

This dish is very good and with a few tweaks is even better. I used red and yellow peppers to add a little colour. Before adding the broccoli I sauteed a little minced garlic in the oil. After the vegetables had sauteed a little I added a couple of tablespoons of water and covered the pan to let the veggies steam until they reached the desired tender crisp stage. A splash of soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds finished the dish. This was very well received at Easter dinner even by those who usually reject all things green. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Very tasty and quick to make! I used light sesame oil added 2 cloves of garlic and 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce for added flavor. Thanks!

I don't get it. Since this recipe called for no seasoning not even salt and pepper I knew it would need something to liven it up. But even after adding onion fresh garlic salt pepper soy sauce and a dribble of toasted sesame seed oil this was still as my husband aptly described it "nondescript."

This is a good recipe but since broccoli is normally a pretty bland tasting veggie I made one big change. I used "Hot" sesame oil. I used a wok and doubled the amount of oil and cooking times. The result was quite "invigerating". However if you prefer "mild" salsa etc this is not for you!

This is my all time favorite way to eat broccoli now! I omitted the green pepper.

At first taste I thought they were pretty bland. (But I wasn't that surprised. Afterall there are no spices). However I let them saute an extra min once I added a couple splashes of soy sauce (as others suggested) and the taste was much better. Went well with our baked bird and potatoes.

This meal was quick to make but didn't offer much for flavor. I'm sure some soy sauce or other spices would help it out.
