Topping Ideas

  • toasted sesame seeds
  • green onions
  • sliced red onions
  • kimchi
  • cucumbers
  • tomatoes
  • sriracha
  • red cabbage


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. 
  • While waiting for it to boil, chop your ginger and garlic. Set aside.
  • Chop head of broccoli.  Cut off all the florets and cut into bite sized pieces. Cut the stalk into small bite size pieces (about half an inch).
    *We are using the florets and stems to make this a zero waste recipe
  • Add just the stalk pieces to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.  Turn off the heat and drain as much water as possible.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, half the sesame oil, black pepper and red pepper flakes.  
  • In a large skillet, add the remaining sesame oil over medium heat. 
  • Once hot, add the drained broccoli and the florets. 
  • Stir together and then let cook for 2 minutes without touching (you want to get a nice toasted sear on the broccoli to add flavor). 
  • Continue cooking for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Add in the sauce mixture and mix around.  Cover your skillet, stirring occasionally for another 5-8 minutes. Less time for broccoli with a slight crunch, or more time for broccoli that is softer.
  • Remove from heat and serve on taco shells with your favorite toppings.
