Blanched Broccoli with Sesame Oil

Blanched Broccoli with Sesame Oil

This is a vegan recipe.

I wanted a simple side dish to serve with the chicken wings I made for Valentine's day, and this one did the trick. It was easy to make and my husband liked it.


Blanched Broccoli with Sesame Oil


  • 1 broccoli head
  • 1 qt water
  • sea salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil, divided
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds


Remove stems from broccoli and cut into thin strips. Separate the florets.

Bring water and salt to boil in a medium bowl. Add the broccoli stems and cook for 2 minutes. Add the florets and 1 Tbsp sesame oil and boil for 3 more minutes. Remove from heat and drain. Transfer to a serving plate, drizzle with 1 Tbsp sesame oil and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
