Recipe of the Week - Broccoli Chinoise

Broccoli is rich in many essential vitamins and minerals. ​While low in calories, broccoli nutrients provide many health benefits. It is a great source of vitamins K, A, and C, in addition to fiber, potassium, folate, and lutein.

Ingredients:

1 large bunch of broccoli
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds

Dressing:
2 Tbsp. sesame oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
black pepper to taste
red pepper flakes to taste

Directions:

  1. Cut the flowerets from the broccoli into bite sized pieces. Slice the stems on a slant into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Steam broccoli in the microwave or on the stove until tender-crisp. Cool the broccoli under cold running water.
  2. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds until they are golden, shaking the pan to avoid burning the seeds. When they are cool, sprinkle over the broccoli.
  3. Combine the dressing ingredients and pour the dressing over the broccoli, tossing to mix well.

Makes about 4 cups.
