How to Make Sesame Broccoli

  • 4 cups broccoli florets (cut into large bite-size pieces, rinsed and drained)
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds ((available in the spice section), add more if desired)

 

Add freshly rinsed broccoli to a microwave-safe dish and partially cook on high for 2 minutes.

Start heating vegetable and sesame oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat.

After about 30 seconds, add the broccoli florets.

After the bottom of the broccoli has charred a bit, (2-3 minutes), turn the florets over to lightly brown the other side (about 1 – 2 minutes more).

Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the top and serve.
