Easy side dish made with broccoli and sesame oil and seeds!
broccoli, sesame oil, sesame seeds
salt for blanching

salt to taste
about 1/2 teaspoon
Cut the broccoli head from the stem. Cut the head into small florets. Peel the stems and cut into small pieces.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a teaspoon of salt and broccoli, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until it reaches the desired tenderness.
Drain, and immediately shock in cold water to stop cooking. Drain well.
