This recipe for Bang Bang Broccoli is both gluten-free and vegetarian. The broccoli is fried, but the secret to its crispiness is a cornstarch coating instead of a flour coating, which makes it gluten-free. Even non-broccoli eaters might want to give this dish a try because it is bang-bang good! For the best crunchy taste, serve immediately after preparing.
The sauce is just three ingredients so it is easy to mix and should be done before cooking the broccoli.
Also, chop the scallion (green onion) while the broccoli soaks in buttermilk. Although it looks like just a garnish, the sliced scallion has a crunch and taste that goes perfectly with this bang-bang dish.
