This is a side dish, good with grilled meats, poultry or fish. I know a lot of times I have grilled meat and end up or steaming or stir frying with butter and garlic. This is a flavorful, less fatty option for that. And I am glad that I found this. Leftovers going to go for tomorrows school and office lunch.

Utensil/ Appliance

large size frying pan


  • Broccoli: 675 g, cut into florets and stems
  • Sesame seeds: 1 tbsp dry roasted
  • Oil: 1 tbsp
  • Light soy sauce: 1 tbsp
  • Dried chilli flakes: 1 pinch, optional, I avoided as I had small kids to feed. But if you like spicy, you must add this.
  • Vegetable stock: 60ml, you can use plain water as well
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste


In the heated pan add the oil and soy sauce and dried chili flakes if using, mix well. Add the broccoli and stir fry for 2 minutes. Pour in the stock and cook in simmer under cover for 2 minutes or until the broccoli is tender but crisp. Stir in the sesame seeds and season with salt and pepper. Cook for a minute. Serve hot.
