Method

  1. Stir together all the sauce ingredients with 1 tbsp water. Set aside.

  2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil with the caster sugar and ½ tsp salt. Add the rice and boil for 15 mins (or following pack instructions) until just cooked. Drain well and return to the pan. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and sesame oil, then cover and set aside to keep warm.

  3. Heat the sunflower oil in a wok until very hot, then toss in the broccoli and stir-fry for 2-3 mins until almost tender, adding splashes of water occasionally to create steam. Add the pak choi and spring onions, and stir-fry for 30 secs, then stir in the sauce and cook for a further 1-2 mins, stirring constantly.

  4. Spread the rice over 2 plates, divide over the stir-fry and serve straight away.

Made this tonight and apart from leaving out the sugar in the sauce as OH and I both prefer sour to sweet we both loved it. I served this with salmon fillets lightly marinaded in light soy and mirin. The sauce was deliciously savoury and went so well with the vegetables. There was a perfect amount to moisten the rice . This will be my new quick meal to cook when tired as only took 20 mins start to finish.

The stir fried broccoli is yum and goes perfectly with sushi rice. I decided not to add all the sauce to the broccoli as there seemed like rather a lot and my instincts were right -- so I recommend stirring in half and then adding more if required. I made sushi rice my own way, using a rice cooker and then adding a sugar/vinegar/salt dressing. So I can't vouch for that part of the recipe. Anyway delicious, healthy and very easy.
