Serves 2 | Prep Time 5 min | Cook Time 10 min


Broccoli - 1 head
Olive oil - 1/2 tbspn
Salt - to taste
Sesame seeds - 1 tspn

1.Separate broccoli into flowerets

2.Put in boiling water and boil for 3-4 minutes till softer but not mushy.

Take out from boiling water and immerse in ice water.

3. Alternatively broccoli can be steamed in a microwave steamer for 1 minute or in another type of steamer. The idea is to cook a little but retain the crunchiness.

4. Dry roast sesame seeds on a griddle or in a pan till slightly brown but not dark brown

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.

7. Enjoy as a snack or side
