Recipe by House Chef, Abbie Leeson
Learning through travel, Abbie has eaten her way through nearly 60 countries. Australia, Finland, Morocco, Japan and France – a few of her culinary favorites. She’s passionate about taking ginger into unexpected places, while still revisiting the classics like her beloved Ultimate Chewy Ginger Snaps. Favorite culinary book: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Favorite moment with a fellow chef: Dinner with Julia Child, 1992. Actually, she was at the next table. We told the waiter, “We’ll have what she’s having.”

Warm Broccoli Salad with Crystallized Ginger

Sweet-spicy Crystallized Ginger with salty soy sauce, a touch of lemon and crunchy almonds takes broccoli from dull to delightful. You’ll want more than one serving! 


  • 1 pound or one bunch of broccoli
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup packed The Ginger People® Crystallized Ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice



  1. Cut broccoli flowerets into bite-size pieces. Trim stems and slice diagonally.
  2. Heat a wok or wide skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and sauté almonds 1-2 minute or just until toasted. Remove from pan with slotted spoon. Reserve. Wipe pan clean with paper towel.
  3. Add remaining oil and broccoli; stir fry until barely tender, 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and stir fry additional 2 minutes or until broccoli is tender-crisp.
  4. Stir in Crystallized Ginger, soy sauce, lemon juice and reserved almonds. Continue stir frying about 1 minute for flavors to blend. Serve warm or room temperature.
