Sesame Broccoli with lime

Bored of just plain old steamed broccoli? It’s one of those veggies that screams out for a dressing!  There’s nothing boring about this sesame broccoli with lime.  Lime juice is combined with soy and sesame oil to make a tangy dressing.  Plus you can drizzle the dressing over other veggies too, especially Asian greens or cauliflower.

1 medium sized broccoli
1 heaped tbsp of sesame seeds
2 garlic cloves
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 1/2 tbsp tamari/soy sauce
1 lime
1 tsp sesame oil

  • remove the broccoli florets and finely slice the stalk.  Discard the rough end bit
  • steam the broccoli until tender but don’t overcook it
  • meanwhile toast the sesame seeds until golden
  • fry the garlic in the coconut oil until crispy and golden but not burnt
  • combine the soy sauce with the lime juice and sesame oil
  • drizzle this dressing over the broccoli and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and garlic

It’s great to team up with steamed fish or left-over chicken for a main meal.
