Recipe Notes

See the original blog post on how to adapt the recipe for your allergies. A more traditional broccoli stir fry recipe would use soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil to create a sauce: 1 Tablespoon soy sauce + 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce + 1 teaspoon sesame oil + 1/2 teaspoon sugar + 2 teaspoon water + 1 teaspoon cornstarch.
