Sesame Salt over Steamed Broccoli

DelectablePlanet's picture
Broccoli is perfectly cooked when it is brilliant green and tender-crisp. Remove it from the heat at once and serve it right away. Cauliflower is also done cooking when it is tender-crisp. Although sesame seeds are high in fat and should be consumed in moderation, they can serve as a great source of calcium and dietary fiber
  Sesame seeds 1 Tablespoon (Raw, Unhulled)
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Broccoli/Cauliflower 1 Bunch (100 gm)

To make sesame salt, toast the sesame seeds in a heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until they begin to pop and brown slightly, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender or coffee grinder. Add the salt and grind into a uniform powder.

Cut or break the broccoli or cauliflower into bite-size florets. You should have about 4 cups. Peel the broccoli stems and cut them into bite-size pieces. Steam over boiling water or cook in a microwave until just tender. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with the sesame salt. Toss until evenly distributed. Serve immediately.

Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Broccoli or Cauliflower with Sesame Salt will keep for up to 2 days.
