Sesame Steamed Broccoli over Quinoa

HealthyVegan's picture
A lot of folks don't like broccoli, which is too bad, because it's always a nutritional powerhouse. Learn how to make it delicious.
  Quinoa 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Broccoli head 1 , chopped
  Chard leaves/Other large-leafed green 2
  Sea salt 1 Teaspoon
  Green onions 2 , chopped
  Toasted sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Tamari/Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Sesame seeds 2 Tablespoon

1.Rinse the quinoa with water, drain, add 2 cups water for every 1 cup quinoa. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt in the water, bring it to a boil for a minute, then turn down to low and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Quinoa is fully cooked when you see the swirl of the grains, with a translucent center, and it is fluffy. Do not stir the quinoa while it is cooking.
2.Cut the broccoli into bite-size florets, cutting and pulling apart from the stem. Also chop the stem into bite-size pieces. Toss the broccoli and chard with salt to moisten them before steaming.
3.Line a steaming tray with chard. Lay the broccoli in the steamer and place it over the boiling water. Leave this to cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the broccoli reaches the level of softness you're looking for.
4.Move the broccoli to a bowl, chop the greens and add them to the bowl along with the chopped green onion. Dress with the sesame oil and tamari and toss.
5.Sprinkle with some sesame seeds (raw or toasted) and toss again, then serve. I hope you enjoy this sesame steamed broccoli recipe, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.
