August 08, 2014

Broccoli with Miso & Sesame Dressing

This dressing works with any boiled vegetables and turns them into a delicious Japanese side dish.

Ingredients

  • 300g  broccoli, trimmed

Dressing

Method

  1. Boil water in a saucepan with a little salt. Add Broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes. Broccoli should be just a little tender but not over cooked. Be careful not to over boil that they need to be crunchy. Drain under the ice cold water, this will stop cooking straight away and keep bright green colour. Drain well and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Grind sesame seeds until very finely crushed.
  3. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl. Mix all the dressing and the broccoli and sesame seeds and toss them well in a large bowl until all the ingredients are well mixed.
  4. Serve them in a large bowl on the table or individual bowls. This dish work well with green beans or asparagus as well.
