Sesame & Lime Broccoli

Inspired by my favourite veggie side dish, Lime & Sesame Steamed Kale, I bring you Sesame & Lime Broccoli (photo taken chez cottage by candlelight)!

Sesame & Lime Broccoli

We needed a green veggie at the cottage after all of our Almond Plum Cake, so I thought I’d try doing some broccoli the same way that I do my kale… and it was divine.  Give it a try!

Lime & Sesame Steamed Kale

Inspired by Martha’s Steamed Broccoli with Lime Dressing

  • 1 head broccoli
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 pinches chili flakes

In a steamer basket in a large pot with about half an inch of water on the bottom, place broccoli, and cover the pot.  Steam for about 3-5 minutes, until the broccoli is bright green.  Watch it carefully, and don’t over-steam.

Remove the steamed broccoli from the steamer basket, and toss with remaining ingredients.  Tongs are great for this step.

Eat and feel virtuous for getting in such delicious greens!
