Broccoli with Sesame Sauce

Boiled or steamed broccoli are simply delicious with this sesame and soy sauce, ready in just a few minutes! This easy recipe is suited for cauliflowers as well…

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 4 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp white sugar


  • Rinse the broccoli under cold water and cut into florets
  • Take a deep saucepan and cook the broccoli in boiling water for 7-8 minutes (I like them crunchy…)
  • In the meantime, take a nonstick pan and toast the sesame seeds at medium heat for about 2-3 minutes, stirring from time to time
  • Grind half of the sesame seeds and put them in a bowl with soy sauce and sugar; mix well to combine
  • When ready, drain the broccoli florets and arrange them on your serving plate, pour the sauce on top and sprinkle with the remaining sesame seeds

Tips from the Chef

You can add salt to the boiling water if you like a stronger flavor, but keep in mind that soy sauce is already quite salty
