3 cups chopped asperation or broccolini
1/4 cup sake
1-1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2-1/2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 to 3 Tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted if desired
Steam the asperation until tender-crisp; drain. Combine the sake, soy sauce, honey and sesame oil in a serving bowl and mix well. Add the asperation and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. You may substitute broccoli or asparagus for the asperation and add water chestnuts and unsalted cashews for a different twist.
