This is a lunch version of one of our new favorite recipes: super simple, full of veggies, and so delicious. If you are not sure about the spiciness, just start with half of the sambal first. Although it really tastes best with all of it!

the exact cooking time will depend on the amount of water and whether you use frozen broccoli, so taste regularly to make sure the broccoli keeps its bite

it will be more a paste than a sauce, but when later mixed with the cooked vegetables it will become more liquid
