"This is a journey of my life since I was all of 12 yrs when I started my hand in cooking to now with displays of my learning and creations of recipes from around the world. My inspiration and role model has always been my Mum who has always created dishes from around the world and excellently well. I do not believe I would ever match to her culinary skills. I remember the times she could cook and bake almost 4-5 dishes in one go without ever letting one go under cooked or burnt! I was born and raised in Dubai, UAE and recently moved to India for family reasons. Kitchenette just means that over the decades, my kitchen has changed from that of my mum's to my uncle and aunt's, to my home in UAE and now in India. Pala't'te, describes both global cuisines ('Palatte'-diverse flavours) and pleasing diverse 'Palates'."

Broccoli in Honey Mustard Sauce

This recipe came about when I felt like cooking up a tangy dish to accompany my crusted bread. Broccoli is a rich source of calcium and is especially the best option of calcium for those who cannot consume diary products. It also has Vitamin A, C, fiber and folic acid. It is known to control high blood pressure and may also prevent colon cancer.

Broccoli in Honey Mustard Sauce
I did not have much of a chance to click many pictures just the one above as we were quite hungry that night. I do recommend having this meal with a side of grilled potatoes or crusted bread. Worcestershire sauce as the name suggests was first made at Worcester, England under the brand name Lea & Perrins (coined from the surnames of its founders). To make this super simple dish,

You need:
  • 1 medium size Broccoli (cleaned and florets separated)
  • 1/4 cup of my Homemade Mustard Sauce
  • 1/2 cup of Honey
  • 1/2 tsp of Black Pepper or White Pepper
  • 2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce (Veg option: Soya sauce)
  • 3 cloves of crushed garlic (optional)
  • 1/2 tbsp of cooking oil
The make:

Cooking Time: 20 minutes| Preparation Time: 15 minutes |Serves:2 adults
  1. Steam or blanch the broccoli florets until semi-soft and drain.
  2. Mix together the Homemade Mustard sauce, Honey, Pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Heat a skillet and add the cooking oil. Toss the garlic (optional).
  4. Next add the drained broccoli florets and add the Sauce mix and warm (do not boil).
  5. Serve hot with a side of grilled baby potatoes or crusted bread.
Bon Appetit!
