Side Serves 4 40 min
The key to this quick and easy way with broccoli is not to oversteam it – it should retain a little crunch. You could also add a little finely minced garlic or ginger for more of a kick. Goes well with chicken or fish.

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets, stems finely sliced

    Whisk the soy sauce, vinegar, oil and honey in a large bowl until blended. Season.

    Steam the broccoli florets and stems for 5 minutes or until tender. Set to one side to cool.

    In a heavy pan, add the sesame seeds and stir over a medium heat until golden.Transfer the seeds to a clean dish to cool.
