Take out from boiling water and immerse in ice water.

5. In a pan heat olive oil, add broccoli, stir for 2-3 minutes, add salt.


6. Sprinkle sesame seeds on the broccoli and remove from pan.

This recipe was told to me by my cook who had learned it from another house where she was working. Have tried it several times and always comes out yum. Great way to have broccoli.
