    I loved it. I skipped the sesame seeds and used a wasabi sesame oil. Full of flavor.

    Way to salty AND I cut back on the tamari. On the other hand, I cooked it in my air fryer at 400 for 10 minutes and that was awesome!

    I cooked for the recommended time and the broccoli burned a bit. make sure to check on it periodically. It was also pretty spicy i would use less chili pepper flakes.

    Way way way too salty. And maybe it’s just my oven but I had to cut the cook time by 10-15 minutes. Use a much smaller amount of tamari or low sodium soy sauce and this would be a nice side dish.

    Excellent flavor! I used a Ninja Foodie which cut down on the time to 12mins

    Great. Used maple syrup instead of nrown sugar.

    Hoisin sauce instead of tamari...that turns this into a 5* dish.

    WAY too much soy sauce. The broccoli tasted like salt.

    Used a little soy glaze with the sesame oil. came out tasty, a little on the salty side, next time i will.go even lighter on the drizzle... fershizzle
    It had a bit too much "bite" to it. Tgus, I'd use a smaller amounts of seasoning. Word of caution, if you can help it, use fresh florets rather than freezer held broccoli.
