Need a new broccoli side dish? I've got you covered with this Sesame Soy Broccoli that makes a great Asian side dish of even main course with some chicken, beef, or tofu.

A few weeks ago I shared this Sesame Soy Edamame and we have been on the sesame soy train ever since. It's such a flavorful way to make a delicious Asian side dish with just about any veggie. The earthiness of the sesame oil and soy sauce really work together with the garlic and ginger. And if you are like me and like things spicy, add some red pepper flakes as well for good measure.

In terms of serving this, it goes great with almost any Asian inspired meal but can also work alongside any simply flavored protein. It can also easily be turned into a main course. Just season up some chicken thighs or extra firm tofu steaks and cook them on the same baking sheet.

Looking for more Asian inspired sides? Try these Simple Asian Stir Fried Veggies, Sesame Green Beans, or Spaghetti Squash and Edamame.
